Ontario Liberals Call For Extended And Expanded Paid Sick Leave

KINGSTON, ONTARIO – Ontario Liberal Leader, Steven Del Duca issued the following statement:

“Rising cases are expected in September and we need to take action now to prevent a fourth wave, protect our most vulnerable, and keep Ontario’s schools and economy open. That’s why today, Ontario Liberals are demanding an extension and expansion of the provincially-funded paid sick leave program, to ensure workers have access to 10 paid sick days.

Ontario Liberal MPP John Fraser tabled a Private Member’s Bill before the Legislature rose which called for 10 paid sick days that were accessible for the duration of the pandemic. Doug Ford previously killed numerous other pieces of legislation from Ontario Liberals and other opposition MPPs, only to pass his own weak, insufficient program.

Now that the program is coming to an end on September 25, it’s crucial that we continue to protect our workers and prevent the spread of COVID-19. With Doug Ford refusing to act, Ontario Liberals are stepping up and standing with Ontario’s workers.”
