TORONTO – Ontario Liberal Leader, Steven Del Duca issued the following statement:
“Today’s modelling from Ontario’s COVID-19 Science Advisory Table shows that Doug Ford’s strategy of waiting until the very last moment to take action has jeopardized our province’s re-opening. As case counts continue to rise, our intensive care units could exceed wave 3 capacity by October, and most schools haven’t even opened yet.
Ontario Liberals called for mandatory vaccinations on the frontlines of healthcare and education, vaccine certificates, and 10 days of paid sick leave for the fourth wave more than a month ago. Had Doug Ford acted on our proposals in July, and not stubbornly refused until September, we wouldn’t be facing another preventable crisis for our hospitals and schools and lockdown for our economy.”
