Tweets spanning 2012 to 2015 from Merrilee Fullerton, Ontario's Minister of Long-Term Care, appear to show that Fullerton supported the privatization of public health care.

In the tweets, which appear to have since been deleted, Fullerton calls private healthcare "necessary" and compares Canada to North Korea on the basis of our healthcare system.

The surfaced screenshots of the tweets come on the heels of a damning report by the Canadian Armed Forces that painted a disturbing picture of horrific conditions in several private long-term care homes. The regulation and inspection of such homes falls within the responsibility of Fullerton's Ministry.
