“We’re seeing that we need to reinvest in our health care — we need to get our new (Niagara Falls) hospital built. That’s gone on way too long. I’ve been crying to the minister of health — I’ve been talking to anyone I can, screaming at the top of my lungs. Niagara is growing so quickly … we need our hospital built as quick as we can."

The hospital is expected to open in 2026.

Gates was busy bringing forward several private member’s bills in 2020.
