News MPP Laurie Scott calls Auditor General’s report “disappointing” SHARE ON: Mathew Reisler, staff Friday, Nov. 27th, 2020 Photo supplied by: Office of MPP Laurie Scott The report put out by Ontario’s Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk looking into the province’s COVID-19 response has been raising eyebrows. MPP for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock Laurie Scott told Rick Lowes on the 93.5 Moose FM morning show it’s a “mischaracterization” of the province’s COVID response. “It’s disappointing,” she added. Lysyk raised concerns in her report that was released earlier this week. She cited flaws in communication by provincial officials, decision making and management of positive cases as things that contributed to a wider spread of the virus over the past year. “We have listened to the medical advice throughout,” Scott said. Scott said outside of Atlantic provinces and territories, Ontario has the lowest levels per capita of actives cases at 88 per 100,000 of any jurisdiction in North America. She says that is proof that the province has responded well to the pandemic. Health Minister Christine Elliot also called the report disappointing and a mischaracterization of how the province has responded to the coronavirus. Scott said it hasn’t been an easy job responding to the pandemic but says the provincial government have done whatever they can to protect Ontarians.
