MPP Bill Walker keen to see a PTSD bill passed at Queen's Park ASAP.
The MPP for Bruce-Grey Owen Sound, Bill Walker, is adamant the Kathleen Wynne government should fast-track a private member's bill meant to recognize Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD) as a workplace illness for emergency personnel.
It has been introduced on seven separate occasions by NDP MPP Cheri DiNovo, and Walker says it needs to be passed and enacted.
Walker tells Bayshore Broadcasting News police officers, firefighters and paramedics would then get timely and appropriate care for the serious challenges associated with PTSD.
