Health Board Wants More Cash for Bed Bug Fight

The city's top doctor is warninng this afternoon that the city's bedbug problem could soon get worse - IF Queen's Park doesn't cough up more money. The province contributed just over a million dollars last year to help Toronto Public Health track down the bugs in the city's homes - and exterminate them. But that pot is now empty. And in a report to TPH this afternoon, the city's medical officer of health Dr. David McKeown says the problem is still out of control. Joining Here and Now with more on the health board's meeting was Tracy Leach. She's manager of Toronto Public Health's bed bug team. Listen audio (runs 7:01)
