When will the government stop caring for hospital patients in retirement homes?

In response to a Toronto Star investigative report that pulled back the veil on appaling conditions for residents in for-profit retirement homes, Health minister Deb Matthews says caring for the elderly in a rapidly aging society is the one issue "that keeps me up at night. I am consumed by this."

My question: when will the government end its policy of caring for hospital patients in for-profit retirement homes?
