Jane Philpott volunteers at Markham group home hit with walkout

Former health Minister Jane Philpott (left) had been volunteering at Markham-Stouffeville Hospital since March at the hospital COVID assessment centre.  But today she showed up in full protective gear at Participation House in Markham, where staff walked out Friday protesting a lack of protective gear. Philpott was recently named Dean of Health Services at Queens University.

A Participation House spokesperson said despite the widespread publicity the walkout has received, there has been no assistance provided aside from the Philpott arrival.
