Ontario’s Care Crisis /w Pat Armstrong
In this episode we continue our discussion of the crisis in long-term care homes in Ontario. This time we are joined by Dr. Pat Armstrong, Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Sociology at York University. Dr. Armstrong’s career has focused on feminist political economy, healthcare and care work, and comparative social policy. She helps us unpack how commodification and privatization have led to Ontario’s current long-term care crisis, as well as provides illuminating examples of how these same politico-economic trends have been dealt with abroad.
