    Good morning,

    My name is Kathy Moreland Layte. I am a registered nurse and professor of nursing from Kitchener, Ontario. I am here today representing the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO). RNAO is the professional association representing registered nurses wherever they practise in Ontario. Since 1925, RNAO has advocated for healthy public policy, promoted excellence in nursing practice, increased nurses’ contribution to shaping the health-care system, and influenced decisions that affect nurses and the public they serve.

    Good afternoon. My name is Josephine Santos. I am here today representing the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario, often known as RNAO. I am a registered nurse and the lead manager for RNAO’s work on the prevention of elder abuse. Elder abuse has always been a priority for our association and we appreciate the opportunity to provide feedback to the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights on Bill C-36. Nurses know in the core of our being that no person ever deserves to be abused or neglected. All seniors should be able to live out their final years and enjoy a sense of respect, dignity, safety, and security. And, as individuals and as a society we must deliver on our duty to protect and fully eliminate elder abuse.

    Good morning. My name is Sabrina Merali. As an experienced public health nurse and program manager with the International Affairs and Best Practice Guideline Centre, I am pleased to be here today representing the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario.

    Ontario’s nurses are in support of Healthy Decisions for Healthy Eating Act, 2012 as we believe it would be a tremendous benefit to the people of Ontario. With increasingly hectic schedules and the demands of juggling competing commitments, many people each week depend on restaurants to meet their nutritional and social needs.

    My name is Laura Hanson and I am a nursing policy analyst with the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO). RNAO is the professional organization representing more than 30, 000 registered nurses who practice in all roles and sectors across Ontario. We appreciate the opportunity to participate in these public consultations.

    As a Budget Committee, you are facing a choice. Will City Council apply creative remedies to the task of building a healthy city? Or will you impose restrictions and cuts that will negatively impact the well being of all of Toronto’s residents and will, within certain communities, have devastating consequences?

    RNAO is speaking here today because nurses are acutely aware of the critical link between social and environmental conditions and health. We work in schools, hospitals, offices, shelters, long term care facilities, on the streets and in patients’ homes. Nurses hear and see the struggles that people, especially those on social assistance and in low-paying and precarious jobs, face to get basic necessities such as food, shelter, clothing, child care, recreation services and transportation.
