OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas and First Vice-President / Treasurer Eduardo (Eddy) Almeida say the fight to save Grey Gables isn't over, reports Bayshore Broadcasting.

"We're not going to sit by and let these councillors waste more than a million dollars and force seniors to move farther away from their families where they'll get lower-quality care," said Thomas. "We're going to make sure the next provincial health minister clears the stench by putting this scheme where it belongs: in the trash heap."

"It's like they took $1.2 million that belongs to Grey County residents and set it on fire," said Almeida. "People in Grey County deserve good-quality long-term care, and that's what we're going to keep fighting for."
