It’s a time when we all have a bit of fun and a few laughs at the expense of our fellow Canadians.
But as of January 1, 2019, the province of Ontario will be cutting its public health services.
As of January 5, 2019 the Ontario Ministry of Health will be reducing its operations to its current capacity of 1,000 staff.
The province has not announced any specific plans to shutter any programs, but a spokesperson for Premier Kathleen Wynne said the provincial government would not be commenting further on this issue at this time.
What to do if you or someone you know has cancer: The Ontario government has been asking residents to help it spread the word about the illness.
The government has sent out email blasts to residents asking them to help spread awareness.
It has also sent out a “lung care checklist” with instructions for those who have experienced the disease.
If you or anyone you know have been diagnosed with lung cancer, you or a loved one may want to visit a cancer support group.
Ontario has a number of support groups for people who have cancer.
For example, the Ontario Cancer Society has a Cancer Support Program that can provide advice and support.
In addition, the Ministry of Public Health and Long-Term Care has an online support and support website that provides information on cancer and the ways in which people can help others who have been affected by it.
Lung Cancer Statistics: Statistics released by the Ontario government on February 10 show that of the 3,848 cases reported to the province, 2,854 were related to the lung cancer.
That means that, out of the total cases, 836 people who are related to each other had the disease and 526 of those cases were diagnosed with cancer.
Of the total number of cases, 565 people with cancer had symptoms related to lung cancer and 731 had symptoms unrelated to lung disease.
Canadians are urged to seek medical attention immediately if they or someone they know has been diagnosed as having lung cancer: Anyone who has had symptoms of cancer or who is experiencing any symptoms related, or suspected, to lung or respiratory disease is asked to seek immediate medical attention.
