that we can to ensure our hospital project continues to move forward,” Mr. Arnott said
When the Ontario Legislature resumes sitting next month, Mr. Arnott intends to follow up with
the new Minister of Health, the Hon. Eric Hoskins, to ensure that he is kept up to date on the
hospital proposal and to continue to solicit the Minister’s support.
