TUNE INTO THE TOWN: THE LATEST ON TORONTO’S MAYORAL RACE
Libby Znaimer is joined by David Crombie, former Mayor of Toronto, Karen Stintz, CEO of Variety Village and Toronto City Councillor Paula Fletcher for Toronto Danforth.
Today: We look at the latest on the Toronto mayoral race. This week, Councillor Josh Matlow, former Toronto Sun columnist and a current VP at True North Anthony Furey, as well as former police chief Mark Saunders have all announced that they are officially running. Last week we learned that former Toronto Deputy Mayor Ana Bailão is running too. Could this be the most exciting mayoral race in recent memory?
JOSH MATLOW IS RUNNING FOR MAYOR
Libby Znaimer is now joined by Josh Matlow, Toronto City Councillor for Ward 12 Toronto-St. Paul’s and is now officially running to be mayor.
The veteran city councillor has thrown his hat in the race this week. He explains his vision for an improved City.
SURGERY WAIT TIMES INCREASE AS CANADA TRIES TO REDUCE SURGERY BACKLOG
Libby Znaimer is now joined by Tracy Johnson, Director of Health System Analytics at CIHI (Canadian Institute for Health Information).
The surgery backlog is concerning, and the data put out by CIHI justifies that concern. According to their report, there were 937,000 less surgeries performed in Canada since March 2020. Cataract surgeries and joint replacements made up 24 per cent of that reduction. Only about 50 per cent of patients needing a knee replacement had their surgeries within 6 months versus 70 per cent before the pandemic. So, why do wait times persist and even get worse as our healthcare system works to tackle the backlog?
