Premier Doug Ford said the Ontario government will take over five more long-term care homes around the Greater Toronto area, in addition to the two already under its control.
The announcement comes after a startling report from the Canadian military was released Tuesday outlining multiple issues in homes across the province.
The five homes include Eatonville Care in Etobicoke, Hawthorne Place in North York, Altamont Care in Scarborough, Orchard Villa in Pickering and Camilla Care in Mississauga.
The military will also remain in those five homes until June 12, Ford said.
More to come.
