Ontario NDP leader -- Andrea Horwath -- is visiting the northwest. She's expected to tackle overcrowding in health care today in Thunder Bay.

Her visit comes as doctors in Kenora lobby to join Manitoba. The physicians have also been upset with an increase in medical transfers to Thunder Bay, rather than Winnipeg.

Close to 2,000 people are supporting a petition created by a family doctor in Kenora, Dr. Clay Hammett.

While a response from the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care for Ontario left the door open for changes, a spokesman for the ministry also noted an agreement with his counterparts in Manitoba would have to wait, until that province's restructuring process was complete.
