Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker said in a news release Tuesday that he will meet with the newly appointed Minister of Health, Eric Hoskins, to discuss the future of the Markdale Hospital.

The offer to meet was made by Minister Hoskins after he failed to assure the local MPP of his government's intended date for the construction of the new hospital in Markdale, Walker said.

The victim was a 49-year old woman from Grey Highlands.

While en route to the scene, an officer observed a man, matching the description of the suspect, walking southbound on Toronto St. S. The suspect, who appeared to be intoxicated, refused to stop and talk to police despite several requests by the officer. Once he was arrested the suspect resisted arrest until such time as other officers arrived to assist. The arresting officer suffered a minor injury to his hand.

Based on these results, the posting from June 30 has been lifted and the area is now deemed safe for bathing. The area was posted when water samples exceeded Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care standards for acceptable bacterial levels.

"Bacterial levels do fluctuate quite a lot, particularly with stormy weather." said Andrew Barton, Program Manager with the Grey Bruce Health Unit. "The best way to reduce your risk is to keep an eye on the conditions at the time of your visit. The Grey Bruce Health Unit recommends that you do not swim following heavy rain, if there are large numbers of waterfowl or other animals in the area or in cloudy water. A good rule of thumb is that you should be able to see your feet when you are waist deep."
