One of the downsides to providing such a detailed election platform (see here) is that there is a lot for your opponents to hold you to account for. Such seems to the case for the governing Tories, whose platform was incredibly detailed. VOCM is reporting that Liberal leader Dwight Ball took the microphones today to announce Premier Kathy Dunderdale has missed her own government’s deadline to provide a provincial strategy on reducing wait times in emergency rooms and for orthopedic surgeries. Ball said the Premier promised, during the Fall election, to have such a strategy ready within her first 120 days in office.
