TORONTO — A new report finds that almost half of Ontario’s hospitals are in a poor state of repair.
That’s far worse than the situation involving roads, bridges and other infrastructure.
The Financial Accountability Office estimates the province owns infrastructure worth about a quarter of a trillion dollars.
Overall, it says about one third is in poor repair.
Remedying the situation won’t come cheap.
The accountability office pegs the cost at $64.5 billion over the next 10 years.
This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 26, 2020.
