You're paying too much, waiting too long and your kids don't want to eat healthly food.
The province's Auditor General's scathing annual report delved into 10 different areas of government workings.
Bonnie Lysyk revealed you're paying as much as you do for electricity because of how much people are being paid at Ontario Power Generation. She says 62 per cent of OPG staff were on the Sunshine List, making more than $100,000 a year. That works out to about 8,000 employees.
She says it's a top-heavy organization, underlining while it's reduced overall staff by 8.5 per cent it's increased the number of high-paid senior executives.
The audit also shows one OPG employee billed taxpayers for $392,000 in moving expenses.
As for OPG pensions, the employer contribution rate is up to five times that of the rest of the public service. The top five OPG executives will be eligible for annual pensions of up to $760,000 when they retire.
The report shows maintenance and custodial services at OPG were staffed at 170 per cent the industry standard.
When it comes to Service Ontario, Lysyk says there are transaction error rates of 40 per cent when you go to to do something in-person. She says customer wait times were a lot longer than 15 minutes.
Lysyk says service delivery costs need to go down and customer satisfaction and error rates need to be monitored.
She says the province also missed the mark on getting people to go online instead of to a Service Ontario outlet. Only half of the target 60 per cent clicked on the website to get a renewal done.
She reveals thousands of health cards and drivers licenses that are still circulating belong to people who have died.
Lysyk's report also shows that:
- Despite school cafeterias offering healthier food choices, their sales have plummeted by 25-45 per cent because students go to fast food places instead.
- The province doesn't monitor if your kids get 20 minutes of daily exercise at school.
- Provincially funded and trained medical specialists leave the province after they graduate. Ontario spends about $780,000 to train each one.
- Waits for orthopaedic surgeries can be as long as 326 days after seeing a specialist.
- The Ministry of Education provides little oversight over private elementary schools, which could lead to sub-standard curriculum and health or safety issues.
- The Auditor says there is a risk some private schools are operating unlicensed daycares.
- Lysyk reveals since hospitals have their own eligibility policies, patients looking for rehab services across the province may be treated differently.
- Ontario parks cleaning and maintenance standards may no longer be appropriate, given there are 40 per cent more visitors at the parks since they were established.
- The province doesn't have enough information to assess whether its efforts to prevent domestic violence are working. It also doesn't know how adequate its services for abused women and children are.
- Land Ambulance times were not consistent across the province, with 60 per cent of the municipalities looked at responded to most of their emergency calls within 15 minutes.
- Even though the Ministry of Children and Youth Services quadrupled autism funding over the past 10 years, more children with autism are waiting to be helped than those receiving services.
- The Auditor says selling off Ontario Northland Transport may end up costing the the government as much as $820 million. The province estimated it would save almost $265 million over three years.
