The U.S. Transportation Department's Office of Inspector General said on Tuesday it will audit the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) November decision to unground the Boeing 737 MAX and other agency decisions. The 737 MAX was grounded in March 2019 after two crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia within five months killed 346 people. The FAA approved its return to service after significant safety enhancements developed during the plane's 20-month grounding.

Rough road conditions cost drivers money, and Saskatchewan has no shortage of rough roads, and CAA is out to find the worst road in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan has around 250,000 kilometres of roads through the province, the largest road surface in Canada. Christine Niemczyk of CAA says the group wasn't able to do the survey last year because of COVID. “It’s an annual campaign and we weren’t able to actually do it last year because it was right at the start of the pandemic and we just weren’t quite ready for it. The campaign has returned and poor roads are something we often talk about. In the past eight or nine years of doing the campaign, we’ve found that the number one problem or issue seemed to be potholes, crumbling pavement, ruts, poor infrastructure, and not enough infrastructure for pedestrians or cyclists to share the road safely with drivers,” Niemczyk said. “We brought back the campaign because we want to hear from Saskatchewan road users about what they think and about what they’ve come across as their worst road. Then at the end of the campaign, we will share the worst roads of 2021 with the Saskatchewan and municipal government just to let them know what roads have been nominated and are deemed the worst roads in Saskatchewan. I’m sure they’re aware of it already, but we want to bring emphasis through the campaign just to make sure they are aware that these roads have been identified by road users in Saskatchewan that they are poor roads with safety concerns.” Currently, the CAA survey shows the worst roads in Saskatchewan include roads or highways near Hudson Bay, Shaunavon, Cadillac, Punnichy, Canora, Prince Albert, Kenaston, Frenchman Butte, Weyburn, Hodgeville, Nokomis, Benson, Moose Jaw, and residential streets in Regina and Saskatoon. Niemczyk explains that CAA also conducted the CAA’s Cost of Poor Roads Study, which is the first of its type in Canada, to help bring emphasis to the costs associated with poor road conditions. The study showed the average Canadian driver spends an extra $126 per year in repairs and damages brought on by poor roads. The average Saskatchewan driver spends less with an average of $97 being spent on repairs per year. While the costs may not appear high, Niemczyk says prices can quickly add up, especially with additional drivers. “You might be thinking that it’s only $97 a year and it isn’t a lot, but what we’re saying is that over a 10-year period, which is around the lifespan of a car, you’re spending an additional cost of just under $1,000. And that’s just for one driver if there are additional drivers that cost can add up and those additional and unexpected costs can certainly put a dent in the average family’s budget. “So on top of what you might be spending on everyday needs like food or clothing, you’re now having to dish out for repairs to your car. It could be tires, it could be a wheel alignment, or it could be something else that you came across on a poor road that caused damage to your car,” Niemczyk said. While there are costs associated with poor road conditions, Niemczyk says the safety of drivers is CAA’s primary concern. “Why we initially did the study and the campaign is for the emphasis of the safety of the driver or the cyclist or the motorcyclist. What we did is we saw and understood how much it cost to maintain a road, build a road, and resurface a road but we wondered what the cost would be for a vehicle and the poor people inside the vehicle.” Damage and deterioration to highways can come in a variety of shapes and sizes. For Niemczyk and many drivers across Saskatchewan, the most common type of deterioration or damage to roads and highways comes in the form of potholes. “We know that it can be everything from weather conditions to the age of the road to heavy traffic or a lack of maintenance. We do know that in cold climates like in Saskatchewan that freezing and thawing cycles certainly play a large role in creating potholes, which is probably the number one problem we noticed in our campaign. “Potholes occur when temperatures frequently go above and below the freezing point when rain or snow seeps through the cracks and opens in the pavements by freezing and expanding. This causes your pavement to heave upward, then as the temperatures rise the pavement returns to its lower level, leaving a hole, a pothole, which breaks apart with vehicles frequently driving over it.” Niemczyk notes that CAA’s studies do not go unnoticed. She explains that once CAA identifies the worst roads in Saskatchewan, they submit the survey to the Government of Saskatchewan to inform them of what drivers believe are the worst roads. “We do know from past campaigns that some of the roads are fixed and repaired and we appreciate everything the municipalities and the provincial government have done to fix those roads and make them safe. But sometimes it just takes a little bit more time based on the budget.” Drivers in and around the Moosomin area have noticed and noted poor road conditions on Highway 8 between Moosomin and Rocanville with a 20 kilometre stretch of broken pavement and rough road. As part of the 2021 budget, the Government of Saskatchewan will begin repaving work on that stretch of highway in May if weather conditions permit. Work is also being done on Highway 308 near Welwyn and has already been tendered with construction expected to begin on April 19th, weather permitting. CAA Saskatchewan is encouraging drivers to visit caask.ca/worstroads to nominate and vote on the worst road they have travelled on.

Ontario hospitals are transferring an unprecedented number of patients within the province as the COVID-19 pandemic puts intense pressure on the health-care system. Doctors say the record number of patient transfers is happening as hospitals face a surge in hospitalizations and admissions to their intensive care units in the third wave. And they say they are concerned about what could happen if hospital resources are stretched further. Hospitals in the Greater Toronto Area are now so full that they are transferring dozens of patients every day. Ornge, in charge of patient transport, says patients are being moved mostly by its critical-care land ambulances, but also by its helicopters and airplanes, and with the help of local paramedic services. Patients are being transferred from hospitals in the Greater Toronto Area to facilities in Kingston, London, St. Catharines, Barrie, Peterborough, Ottawa and Sudbury. A total of 2,059 patients have been transferred since mid-November, when the Ontario government activated the GTA Hospital Incident Management System, according to Ontario Health. The system monitors bed capacity in Ontario. Dr. Andrew Healey, chief of emergency services and an emergency and critical care doctor at the William Osler Health System, said on Tuesday that the transfers are having a huge impact on patients, families and hospitals. "We're transferring the largest number we've ever seen in the system, not only from Osler but also provincewide," Healey said. Eleven days ago, the province issued emergency orders allowing Ontario hospitals in danger of being overwhelmed by COVID-19 to transfer patients without their consent. This is the first time such an order has been made during the pandemic. "People want to receive care at the hospital closest to their home. And this is the beginning of the stress that comes with this kind of transfer system." Healey said. "It also affects the layer of complexity that occurs within the hospital itself, obtaining consent where we can for transfer, getting patients to other facilities, ensuring that patients and families are well informed of that transfer, arranging the actual mechanism of transfer, the receiving physicians, ensuring their safe handover," he said. "The task is extremely complex. And the sicker the patient, the more complex that task. We have certainly seen times where different members of families are at three different hospitals, with one deteriorating in one hospital and another deteriorating in another and trying to have conversations." Hospital system stretched to its limit, doctor says Healey said he is concerned about what will happen if the William Osler Health System, a network of hospitals in Peel Region and Toronto's west end, becomes overwhelmed. Dr. Andrew Healey, chief of emergency services and an emergency and critical care doctor with the William Osler Health System, says: 'We are dangerously close to not being able to provide typical care in typical spaces to the patients who present with COVID-19 infection and others in our hospital system.' (CBC) "I am very concerned about the potential for us to not be able to meet the demand of the pace at which patients will present through the front doors of our hospital," he said. "We are dangerously close to not being able to provide typical care in typical spaces to the patients who present with COVID-19 infection and others in our hospital system." With transport and hospital systems working flat out, there is concern about what would happen from a further spike in COVID-19 patients needing critical care. Healey said individual hospitals could become suddenly overwhelmed if they were to receive, hour after hour, a number of COVID-19 patients who need oxygen. "Hospitals are already stressed and they're working their hardest. And then we get a large influx internally of a major surge of people who require care. And that's the situation that I'm most worried about and I think is almost an inevitability." William Osler has transferred 565 patients Healey said the William Osler Health System has benefited the most from the patient transfer system. It has transferred 565 patients since mid-November. He said that reflects the size of its health system as well as the number of people becoming infected by the novel coronavirus. Healey said hospitals are "trying to find the right patients to send that are safe for transport." Many who are transferred have COVID-19 but not all. They include acute care and intensive care unit patients. "We're transferring out at a rate that closely approximates but doesn't quite meet the demand of the patients coming through the front door. We're taking care of over 200 acutely ill COVID patients across our system at the moment." Ornge recreates ICU in back of ambulance Dr. Bruce Sawadsky, chief medical officer of Ornge, said the transfers are not a simple matter. Ornge, a not-for-profit organization, provides air ambulance and critical care transportation services in Ontario by air and land. Dr. Bruce Sawadsky, chief medical officer of Ornge, says: 'We're pretty much maxed out right now. We've planned out and are determined to provide this level of support for the next two to four weeks or as long as it takes. But at this point, I don't believe we can provide more resources given our current circumstances.'(Jean Delisle/CBC) "Essentially it's taking that ICU that they're coming from and recreating it in the back of a land ambulance for that sometimes two-to-three hour trip," he said. "Many of these patients require high levels of oxygen. They can be very difficult to ventilate. And putting them in a transport environment makes it even more challenging. It's doing what we usually do, but doing a lot more of them, and over a longer distance, especially in PPE. So it's quite taxing for the staff." Transfers happened steadily in March, but the pace has accelerated dramatically this month. He said Ornge has moved 194 patients in April so far. "We're pretty much maxed out right now. Our staff have really been stepping up over the last couple of weeks. We've planned out and are determined to provide this level of support for the next two to four weeks or as long as it takes. But at this point, I don't believe we can provide more resources given our current circumstances," Sawadsky said. Province using entire health care system as 1 resource Health Minister Christine Elliott said on Tuesday that patient transfers maximize use of the hospital system, using the entire health-care system as one resource. "We are still building, we are still creating capacity," she said. The provincial government is trying "to make sure that if someone needs to be admitted to intensive care, whether by reason of COVID or some other reason, that we will have the space for them." A total of 2,059 patients have been transferred since mid-November, when the Ontario government activated the GTA Hospital Incident Management System, according to Ontario Health. The system monitors bed capacity in Ontario.(Evan Mitsui/CBC) The number of COVID patients in Ontario's hospitals has more than tripled in the past month and is now at a record high. The number in intensive care units has doubled in the past three weeks and is the highest since the pandemic began. The result is that some hospitals receiving patient transfers from the GTA are filling up as well and they are having to send their own patients out of town. On Tuesday, Ontario reported that there are 2,360 people in hospital with COVID-19, of which 773 are in intensive care units due to COVID-19-related illness. A total of 537 are breathing in ICUs with the help of ventilators.

The Municipal Potash Tax Sharing Administration Board has released its 2021 potash tax sharing estimates for the Esterhazy Area of Influence, with most urban municipalities within the area seeing an 8.30 per cent increase in the amount they are receiving in 2021, and most rural municipalities receiving a 9.71 per cent increase. The exception to this is the RM of Moosomin and the RM of Spy Hill, which are both seeing decreases this year in their sharing distribution compared to 2020. The RM of Moosomin has a decrease of 3.71 per cent and will be receiving $8,185.29 less than last year. The reason is that the adjustment received in 2020 for the dissolution of the Village of Welwyn is no longer applicable. The adjustment was limited to a three-year period from 2018 to 2020. In 2020 the RM received $220,634.19. This year it will receive $212,448.90. The RM of Spy Hill has a decrease of 8.27 per cent, or $164,960,96. The change is due to a shift in potash production to newer mine sites farther west, and farther away from the RM. In 2020 the RM received $1,995,124.81. In 2020 it will receive $1,830,163.85. Municipalities receive a percentage of the potash tax sharing distribution if they are within 16.1 kilometers of a mine site. This year’s total taxable assessment, between Nutrien and Mosaic, is close to a billion dollars at $924,150,510. Spencer Kemp, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, The World-Spectator
