With less than two weeks before Ontarians cast their ballots the Liberals are starting to close the gap between them and the PC Party in the provincial election race, according to a new poll.

“The CP24/CTV Ipsos Reid poll of 868 Ontarians has determined that the Liberals now enjoy the support of 34 per cent of decided voters (up three points from last week), compared to 36 per cent from Tim Hudak’s PC Party (up one point), 23 per cent for Andrea Horwath’s New Democrats (down five pints) and seven per cent for the Green Party/ Other (up one point). About 17 percent of respondents remain undecided,” according to a recent article posted on CP24’s website.

Plans are being developed to create such a facility that would absorb some of the burden of emergency care as well as allow for diagnostics and family care providers.”
