Doug Ford Ignored Experts on Class Sizes

TORONTO – Steven Del Duca, Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, made the following statement: 

Doug Ford is considering a school shutdown after 113 days of ignoring expert advice on class sizes. He has doubled down on a plan that doesn’t contain the spread of COVID-19 in schools, and betrayed our children.

Doug Ford’s team has been constantly downplaying the need for smaller class sizes and the potential of COVID spread in schools. As recently as last night, his team has called their approach a success. 

Today, the Education Minister made clear that COVID-19 spread in schools is a clear and present danger. Doug Ford must act now so that students return to safe class sizes after this avoidable shutdown.

It’s never too late to do the right thing, but Doug Ford is proving time and time again he is the wrong leader for Ontario. Time for him to step up or step aside.
