TORONTO — Soldiers deployed to five Ontario long-term care homes struggling with COVID-19 outbreaks found disturbingly bad conditions, a new report says. When they arrived at the homes to help with the novel coronavirus pandemic in early May, members of the Canadian Armed Forces found cockroach infestations, force-feeding and residents left crying for hours. “I think it’s appalling. I think it’s disgusting what’s happened,” Ontario Premier Doug Ford told reporters shortly after the document’s release Tuesday. “It was hard to get through. It was the worst report, the most heart-wrenching report I have ever read in my entire life.”
