PORT HOPE, Ont. There are signs of progress in Toronto's garbage strike, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Tuesday, as he expressed optimism that a resolution may be nearing in the weeks long conflict.
The head of Toronto's emergency medical service told a news conference Tuesday that any delays in treating the man had nothing to do with the strike.
McGuinty also weighed in on the case of a Toronto man whose death was being blamed on the strike. The man's loved ones say it took an ambulance about 30 minutes to come to his aid, despite three calls to 911, after he had Nike Hoodie Blue

"It is now incumbent upon EMS in Toronto to provide all necessary reassurances that all steps are being taken to ensure that in the case of an emergency, nobody's health is going to be compromised because of this strike," McGuinty said, also extending condolences to the victim's friends and family.
