Special photo The Cornwall Community Police Service and the Eastern Ontario Health Unit have launched Medi Drop, a new program that offers a safe and anonymous way for the pub- lic to dispose of unused, unwanted or expired medication. Area residents can now drop prescription or over-the-counter medications that they no longer want or need into se- cure Medi Drop boxes that have been placed throughout the city of Cornwall. Boxes have been placed at the Cornwall Community Police station on Pitt Street and at the east-end station on Montreal Road, as well as at both the McConnell and Second Street sites of the Cornwall Community Hospital. Pictured above, from left, areDanielle Lau- zon and Chief Dan Parkinson of the Cornwall Community Police Service pose with Dr. Paul Roumeliotis at the launch of Medi Drop on Monday.

community program spending by four per cent, and while this increase is welcome in the face of long waiting lists for homecare and longterm care, community support programs are not a trade-off for hospital ca- pacity, according to coalition chair Elaine MacDonald said. “Ontario already has the highest occu- pancy rate in Canada at 98 per cent and the fewest hospital beds per capita off all provinces except one. A zero per cent in- crease promises more cuts to the system that is already struggling. “ The overriding concern of the members of the health coalition is that another round of rationing will mean further cuts to an al- ready over-stressed system. Since 1990, On- tario has cut over 18,500 beds. Community capacity and regulation of healthcare provision has not kept up. With more cuts come shortages and longer waits, which the group fears will drive the development of private for-profit care, the coalition says. The Cornwall Chapter of the Health Coalition is one of 50 local health coalitions in Ontario and one of 300 community groups that make up the Ontario health Coalition.

Members of the Cornwall Chapter of the Ontario health Coalition met Monday af- ternoon in Cornwall to discuss the impact of Ontario budget on healthcare in the area. The healthcare provisions in the Ontario budget as announced by the finance minis- ter are drastic, according to coalition. Brian Lynch, a health coalition member, said “that changes to the way hospitals will be funded in the future will negatively im- pact small and rural hospitals which ser- vestable populations. Dollars are being shifted to centres that are experiencing growth.” Whereas healthcare costs across the province were expected to escalate over three per cent this year, and Dion Drum- mond had urged the government to hold overall increase to 2.5 per cent as an auster- ity measure, the minister whittled support down to an overall 2.1 per cent increase which has observers and activists alarmed. Of that 2.1 per cent increase, hospitals will not see a penny. There will be no increase to base funding for hospitals this year. On the plus side, the budget increases
