TORONTO – Ontario Liberal Leader, Steven Del Duca issued the following statement:
“Ontario Liberals will vote to support a safe reopening of outdoor activities, as recommended by Ontario’s Science Table. This prolonged shutdown of outdoor activities, against nearly all medical advice, has had a huge impact on mental health.
In their statement, the Science Table specifically recommended “keeping people safely connected by maintaining social connections and outdoor activity. This means allowing small groups of people from different households to meet outside with masking and two-metre distancing, keeping playgrounds open, allowing outdoor team sports with masks, and clearly encouraging safe outdoor activities.”
Ontario Liberals have consistently called on Doug Ford to follow the Science Table’s advice, and he has continuously failed to do so. He needs to stop listening to his Conservative political advisors and start listening to Ontario’s top Doctors.”
