Ontario's Acting Auditor General Nick Stavropoulos will present his annual report on Wednesday. He focused, in particular, on emergency triage and access to health care in the north of the province, in addition to the controversial project of the Doug Ford government to move the Science Center.

Also in his sights: the quality of care offered to residents of long-term care centers and the role of Public Health Ontario.

Overflows in emergency rooms and their temporary closures in certain hospitals due to lack of staff have attracted attention in recent months.

The plan to move the Science Center to Ontario Place near Lake Ontario in Toronto is also raising opposition. The Ford government counters that taxpayers would save a quarter of a billion dollars over 50 years.
