THUNDER BAY -- The chair of a non-profit group is on a mission to free up beds at the region's hospital by persuading the province to build a new facility.
Cecil Cranton is a man on a mission, who says there are people taking up much-needed beds at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre.
Cranton is the chair of a small group called Friends of Our Regional Hospital, and he believes there are patients in acute care beds who don't need to be there.
He would like to see a new transition house facility built for those who don't need hospital care.
The group has taken it upon themselves to distribute petitions to apartment mailboxes and local newspapers.
Cranton is hoping for a minimum of 40,000 signatures and the next step is a presentation to city council.
