Toronto the Not So Good

I have a friend who works for the Toronto Ambulance Service, so this particular factoid surprises me not at all...

Away from the glare of a media press conference, Humber River Regional Hospital, on orders from the provincial health ministry, quietly released the worst death rate of any Toronto-area hospital.

Humber's rate is the second worst in Canada. Only Kitchener's Grand River Hospital fared worse, with a rate of 142.
Global news is also reporting two home invasions today... with one victim in hospital in critical condition.


UPDATE: Toronto Hit Parade
Two gunmen stormed a Scarborough townhouse and methodically searched for Fitawrari Lunan, ignoring his terrified friend and her 8-year-old son before finding their victim and shooting him, police said yesterday.

"They were aggressively hunting through the house," Toronto Police Homicide Det.-Sgt. Gary Giroux said.

Lunan, 25, remains on life support in hospital with more than a dozen family members at his side.

As a hospital employee this ticks me off!Hardworking dedicated Humber employees get 'labeled' because gangs in the 'hood are knocking each other off.
