Hospital Projects on the Infrastructure Ontario Fall 2019 Market Update in order of their Projected Financial Close, and their region’s Queen’s Park representation

NOTABLE:

The hospital renovation enjoyed strong support from the previous Liberal government, but no sooner had Kingston elected a Tory MPP in the Ford government than Hillier was sacked from caucus for alleged insensitive remarks.
