Doug Ford Lied to Ontario

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

“A jaw-dropping scandal has revealed that Doug Ford lied to Ontario and betrayed the trust of voters. 

Doug Ford ignored the advice of Ontario’s top doctors and then lied to us about it. His lie has led to skyrocketing COVID cases and a new wave of tragedy in our nursing homes.

In the last 24-hours alone, Ontario’s nursing homes saw 24 new deaths. That’s one grandparent lost every hour because of Doug Ford’s lies. He has betrayed these grieving families.

Doug Ford told us we could trust him. He told us he would follow the science. He told us he would keep our grandparents safe. He told us it was safe to pack kids into overcrowded classrooms. 

How can we ever trust him to tell the truth again?

Ontario is on track to see 2,000 new cases each day in December. That’s not okay. Doug Ford must replace his confused political plan with the plan the doctors recommended. Nothing else can stop the second wave.”
