MPP to government: keep promise on hospitals

TORONTO - On the first week of the new provincial parliament, Wellington-Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott reiterated his support for the hospital capital projects in Centre Wellington and Georgetown.

He spoke in the legislature on Nov. 24, calling on the Dalton McGuinty government to keep the promises it made to those communities prior to the Oct. 6 provincial election.

“I will hold the government to the commitments it made to my constituents in August of this year,” Arnott told the legislature. “In fact, doing all that I can to hold the government’s feet to the fire on their promises to support our hospital projects, is one of my highest priorities in this 40th provincial parliament.”

On Aug. 25, then Minister of the Environment John Wilkinson announced a new Groves Memorial Community Hospital would be built in Centre Wellington.

The minister told reporters 2014 is the target year to tender the project. On Aug. 31, the Minister of Health announced a provincial grant of up to $2.6 million dollars to support the Georgetown Hospital renovation project.

At the pre-election announcements, both ministers publicly acknowledged the work Arnott had done to advocate for those projects.

Arnott, in turn, thanked the government as well as hospital staff and volunteers, and gave credit to the local municipal partners.
