    Dear Prime Minister Trudeau and Premier Wynne,

    Registered nurses, nurse practitioners and nursing students are thrilled at the prospect of meaningful federal-provincial partnerships. Prime Minister Trudeau's open letter to Canadians upon taking office affirmed that "we made a commitment to invest in growing our economy, strengthening our middle class, and helping those working hard to join it." A critical means of achieving all three is through federal and provincial investments in affordable housing - we call on you to take swift action.
