back in the so called first wave of the corona hysteria, Burlington had field hospital it was empty and unused. U.S cities like Seattle and New York had field hospitals during the first hysteria based lockdowns they were also empty. the U.S Navy used a ship has a hospital that was also empty during the first wave. so how long can Ford lockdown tyrants keep up the fear, the panic, the hysteria the empty hospitals? this can't go on forever. MPP Randy Hillier today just called for mass civil disobedience against the latest hysteria based lockdowns. And i will be a part of that.



If Ontario’s hospital ICUs are overflowing, why is the temporary COVID field hospital at Sunnybrook empty and unused?

And why are patients being sent out of town to other parts of the province as Health Minister Christine Elliott said Wednesday?



“Intensive Care Units (ICUs) have more patients now than they ever did in previous waves,” Elliott told reporters. “With many hospitals at capacity, we are seeing patients being transferred to other hospitals for the care they need — sometimes hundreds of kilometres away.”

What’s the reason for this? There are 85 new, empty hospital beds at the field hospital.

When Toronto Sun Queen’s Park Bureau Chief Antonella Artuso asked this question, Elliott did not seem to have a complete answer.

“We have made considerable increases in the number of beds available knowing that COVID-19” would end up with “hospitalizations,” Elliott said.

She mentioned being “ready to stand up” a special parking lot unit at Sunnybrook but did not address why it’s not operational when increasing COVID-19 cases are so troublesome?



When patients are reportedly being moved from hospitals in Toronto to Peterborough or Kingston, it raises questions about why those communities are being put at risk of COVID spread instead of making use of beds available right here.

Sunnybrook spokesperson Katherine Nazimek told the Toronto Sun “the mobile health unit is still in the process of being set up for patient care” and “should have more details in the coming week.”


What’s the rush? Isn’t the province supposed to be in a COVID crisis?

These tents have been visible at Sunnybrook for a month.

“We are ready for anything that might come our way,” Robert Burgell, Sunnybrook’s director of patient flow and emergency preparedness, told reporters March 9.

That was 30 days ago.

Accompanied by photographer Veronica Henri, I went there Wednesday, and it appears ready to go.

If it isn’t, that may even be a bigger concern than why it is not being used. Why take weeks to get an emergency unit going when you are locking everybody else down because things are supposed to be so out of control?

Even if the spin is these are not ICU beds, then the question is why build them in the first place? Or why not build more inside the hospital?

It’s not like COVID-19 modelling for April didn’t warn that things could spike.

No matter the excuse, , if rising COVID cases are resulting in patients being transferred for care at hospitals hours away, then it would be wise to work every second to get this field unit up and running now. There did not seem to be any sense of urgency Wednesday.


While Premier Doug Ford, who urged people to not be “negative” or “political,” may be able to shut down the economy, Ontario residents had better hope he can’t shut down scrutiny.

These sorts of questions need to be asked if the government is going to go to the extreme of imposing business and school closures and stay-at-home orders.

The statistics show that while there are increases in COVID-19 cases, the average number of daily deaths is not as high as it was earlier in this nightmare. And they don’t show a large number of fatalities being under 50.


It’s not negative to ask if the hospitals are overrun with COVID patients. Why not use these hospital beds since they are there anyway?

Nor is it unfair to ask if things in ICUs are as frightening they say, why not use the field hospital set up to treat the very health risk that has shut down the province.

Ford should just go down to Ikea and buy mattresses on sale and call each one an ICU bed, that way we can easily have a million ICU beds because all that matters is # of beds, just hire people off craigslist to manage the beds, we certainly do not need doctors and nurses in our makeshift ICUs because if we did then perhaps we would run into limitations because of the lack of doctors and nurses and that would certainly ruin my IKEA themed makeshift ICU idea so obviously there are plenty of doctors and nurses available and my idea is sound.

I wouldn't let DUMBASS Menzie in my backyard let alone tour a hospital. All Ezra does now is constantly begging for money because of the demonitazation. Must have learned that from Trump. Milk their dumbass and gullible supporters, it works.

KGH here in Kingston has 16 covid cases being treated from out of town, no info on how many in ICU.
https://kingstonhsc.ca/patients-families-and-visitors/covid-19-information-and-updates
The explanation for why this is may be in this sentence from the article CM referenced.
"Sunnybrook spokesperson Katherine Nazimek told the Toronto Sun “the mobile health unit is still in the process of being set up for patient care” and “should have more details in the coming week.”"

I've been driving around and listening to the news stations this whole week- as much as I could. I can't recall hearing the actual numbers of the ICU patients nor the areas, just the number of positive tests. How many hospitalizations does it take to overwhelm the whole province? From what I can gather from the quick internet search-1400 and change. I can't help but think that we are paying Cadillac prices for a Chevy quality of a health care system.

This whole situation is way out control. A year in and we are worse then before and there s no end in site. The people in charge should have been fired long time ago and replaced with competent people.

Where are the ventilators that were suppose to be built by Canadian companies? Where are the medical grade face masks, that were suppose to be made in Ontario factories?

The only thing that our leaders know how to do is to close down barber shops, that is their plan.

If this was real pandemic we would all be dead by now.

So you guys are complaining that the emergency backup ward that was built isn't full?

The fact that the precautions you hate has kept us barely under emergency level should be seen as a good thing. You're probably the type to complain about your life insurance because you haven't been able to use it yet.
