TORONTO — Mike Schreiner released the following statement after the Premier’s press conference:
“Yet again the Premier is teasing big announcements regarding the pandemic. This time in reference to COVID modelling.
I’d like to remind the Premier to not treat the pandemic like a game show.
Ontario is in a real crisis right now as doctors are looking for ways to transfer patients to other hospitals and how to make room in wards that are already over capacity.
Instead of announcing more support, the Premier stood before a microphone today and teased the idea of stricter measures at the end of January – that’s three weeks away.
This rerun of building suspense before announcements is unacceptable and dangerous. If the Premier is sitting on information, then he needs to share it now and stop the teasing.
I call on the Premier for full transparency and decisive action now.”
