Posted October 25th, 2016 on Niagara At Large

Queen’s Park, Toronto – “This (October 25th) morning, all Ontarians learned about the horrific multiple-murder investigation in Woodstock and London.queens-park

Like our constituents in London, we are shocked and saddened by this news. Our hearts go out to the families and loved ones of all the victims of these alleged crimes. Every resident and every family of loved ones in long-term care has questions today. In the coming days and weeks, they will need answers.”

During Question Period this October 25th, MPP Armstrong, who also serves as NDP Critic for Seniors Affairs, asked the following questions to the Premier:

Question 1:

My question is to the Premier.

This hour, we’ve just learned about a horrific multiple-murder investigation in Woodstock and London.

Police have revealed that at least 8 elderly residents of long-term care homes were allegedly murdered between 2007 and 2014.

Our hearts go out to the families and loved ones of all of the victims.

But there is a genuine question that people are asking this morning:

How do alleged murders go undetected for nearly ten years inside any long-term care home in Ontario?

Question 2:  

Again to the Premier.

Of course the investigation is ongoing and the matter is now before the Courts.

But this horrific multiple-murder raises a serious question of oversight by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

Again, my question is straight forward.

How do eight alleged murders happen in long-term care homes without the Ministry noticing?
