Election promises

Re “Wynne’s Liberals to call buy-elections”(Editorial, Jan. 15): Congratulations to Niagara Falls byelection voters on the Liberals’ promise of a new hospital. Here in Ottawa-Orleans, the Liberal MPP used the creation of an amazing Family Health Hub in three election campaigns. Initially announced in 2008, this marvellous facility would cost upwards of $100 million and would provide at least 12 core programs in the delivery of medical services. It was to be “up and running” in 2012/13. In August of 2009, then-premier Dalton McGuinty re-announced the centre and the commitment of funds and suggested ground breaking in 2011. In August of 2011, weeks before the general election, the Liberal MPP for the area, and the minister of infrastructure, again announced the building of the Health Hub, and a commitment of funding for same, citing a possible completion date of 2013. Lots of praise has been expressed for the facility and, once completed, the quality services it will provide to the fortunate residents of Orleans. As of January 2014, the site for this great Health Hub remains barren and snow covered, and even the original announcement signage has disappeared. It is not often mentioned now, but perhaps if an election is called .
sounds like Brampton

new hospital wasn't supposed to be a P3 let alone closing the old one
