...a billion dollars short...
Ontario Health Minister David Caplan has resigned on the eve of the release of a provincial auditor's report that is scathingly critical of his health ministry.Sorry Premier McSlippery... this just isn't gonna cut it.
Mr. Caplan tendered his resignation to Premier Dalton McGuinty on Tuesday, according to a source close to him. His departure comes one day before Auditor-General Jim McCarter releases a report into the $1-billion the province has spent developing digital medical records with little to show for it.
Officials in the Premier's office and Mr. Caplan's did not immediately return telephone messages.
