The 2022 Ontario general election was held on June 2, 2022 to elect the 124 members of the 43rd Parliament of Ontario. The Progressive Conservative (PC) Party of Ontario, led by Doug Ford, won a majority government with 83 of the 124 seats in the legislature. The incumbent party, they increased their seat share from 76 in the 2018 election. They campaigned on a slogan to “get it done,” pledging to build highways and transit infrastructure and open up the “Ring of Fire,” a mineral-rich area in northern Ontario. Instead of an election platform, the Ontario PC Party presented its promises on its website in the form of press releases throughout the campaign.

Promise History

1.12.05 - “[E]nd hallway medicine”

Broken
02-Nov-2020
Justification

The Polimeter team recognizes that the COVID-19 crisis has put unprecedented strain on the health system. Nevertheless, this promise is considered broken because many hospitals across the province were filled beyond capacity between November 2019 and January 2020, before the onset of the pandemic.

“The data suggests many hospitals have returned to the overcrowding levels seen before the pandemic, when CBC News revealed hospitals filled beyond capacity nearly every single day, with patients housed in hallways, conference rooms and cafeterias not as exceptional cases, but as a matter of routine. […] The figures show that last winter, despite the government’s promise to end so-called ‘hallway health care,’ acute care occupancy rates hit unprecedented levels, with many hospitals filled beyond capacity for weeks.”

“Overcrowding has become so common in Ontario hospitals that patient beds are now placed in hallways and conference rooms not only at times of peak demand, but routinely day after day, research by CBC News reveals. […] [Health Minister Christine] Elliott admitted it will take ‘several years’ to achieve Ford’s promise of ending hallway health care.”
