    Toronto Star:  A Star investigation at Southlake Regional Health Centre, a hospital in Newmarket, found patients in the mental-health unit often find themselves among three people sharing a room designed for a single patient. Hospital officials said Southlake has among the highest volume of mental health patients, but the lowest number of in-patient beds in York Region.
   When asked about the investigation, Wynne said the difficulty came from the fact that increased awareness of mental-health issues puts more strain on the system.
   “Your story — which is great — is about a mental health situation in a unit that was built about a decade ago, that was state-of-the-art at the time,” she said.
