Ottawa to audit veterans centre over accusation of neglect

Posted online by The Canadian Press

The federal government has ordered a thorough audit of the country’s largest veterans’ facility following complaints from family members about substandard care. A senior official , who requested anonymity, said Veterans Affairs Minister Steven Blaney gave the order on Thursday after hearing the “disturbing” allegations of neglect of frail vets at the Sunnybrook Veterans Centre. The audit would focus both on how taxpayers’ money is being spent and on the quality of the care provided, the official said.
