Ontario Liberals Propose Provincial Compensation to Victims of Ongoing Illegal Occupation in Ottawa

OTTAWA – Ontario Liberals are calling on the Ontario government to provide immediate support to Ottawa businesses and workers impacted by the ongoing illegal occupation in their city.

“If this were an ice-storm, we would help. These workers and businesses have played by the rules and are now victims who deserve our help,” stated Ontario Liberal Leader, Steven Del Duca.

“The people of Ottawa are scared, angry and looking for leadership to end the occupation and reopen their businesses, but they’ve been abandoned by a Premier who is too afraid of upsetting the anti-vax base within his party”, Del Duca added.

Ontario Liberals are proposing provincial compensation for Ottawa businesses and workers who have lost income as a result of this illegal occupation. The province should then seek reimbursement of those costs through the courts from protest organizers.

“I would normally say it’s time he put his money where his mouth is, but Doug Ford has been silent on supporting the businesses and people of Ottawa through this crisis. In fact, he’s only made things worse. It’s time the province stepped up to provide real support to the victims of this occupation,” Del Duca concluded.
