In late April Ronnie suffered two major strokes, one in his cerebellum and the other in his brain stem. After two life-saving surgeries and almost a month in ICU Ronnie is finally stable. However, for stroke victims like Ronnie, who are between the ages of 20 and 64, neither OHIP nor our CUPE 3903 coverage covers rehabilitation once he leaves the hospital, which can cost between $50,000 – $200,000.
Ronnie received his BFA at York, his Masters at Guelph and he is currently a senior PhD Candidate in the History Department. He is a former GHSA Co-President and an active member of the Graduate History Program and CUPE 3903. He is also an accomplished musician, playing in well-known groups controller.controller, Lioness and Flowers of Hell.
