Ontario Auditor General releases special report on COVID-19 long-term care readiness, response |LIVE

CA, 28 Apr 2021
Ontario’s auditor general is set to table a second special report at Queen’s Park on Wednesday that further probes the provincial government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bonnie Lysyk’s report, which her office previously said was set to focus on the management of COVID-19 spending, personal protective equipment and issues in long-term care, will be presented to the legislature Wednesday morning.

In late November, Lysyk released the findings of her first major examination of the government’s handling of the pandemic.

In that report, she cited issues with delays and confusion when it came to how decisions were being made. She also highlighted ‘confusing’ and indirect communications on COVID-19 from Ontario officials.

At the time, the governing Progressive Conservatives took issue with many parts of the report, with Premier Doug Ford dismissing it as "21 pages of inaccuracies," while accusing Lysyk of overstepping her authority.
