Well, we always knew Doug Ford's slogans wouldn't be enough to fix Ontario's dangerously overcrowded emergency rooms and hospital hallways.

Now we have the depressing numbers to show just how short the Ford government has come in fulfilling its election promise, never mind actually improving the province's healthcare system.

This past June was the worst June on record for hospital overcrowding since the province began collecting statistics in 2008 to track so-called "hallway medicine." The average wait to be admitted to hospital from an emergency department topped 16 hours, according to the provincial agency Health Quality Ontario. That's even more troubling given the winter spikes are still to come.
