TORONTO – Ontario Liberal Leader, Steven Del Duca issued the following statement:
“Ontario is in a fourth wave with cases rising every day, and Doug Ford just announced he will shut down the legislature until October so that he can continue to avoid responsibility. Everyone knows that Doug Ford has been hiding for the past two months. He needs to go back to work now in order to deliver a real vaccine certificate, a better plan to reopen our schools and to help families get through this lingering public health crisis.
As the father of two daughters in publicly funded schools, one who is too young to be vaccinated, I cannot accept Doug Ford walking away from his duty. Political cowardice will not get us through the fourth wave, and I’m deeply disappointed in Doug Ford’s decision to abdicate his responsibility.
Ontario families will never forget that when the chips were down, Doug Ford chose selfishly to abandon them.”
