QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner made the following statement regarding the new COVID-19 modelling in Ontario:
“The new COVID-19 modelling released today confirms that Ontario is in a real crisis.
And the Premier cannot say under any circumstances that he didn’t see this coming.
Ford was warned, and yet he delayed action.
Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have been calling on the Premier to restore paid sick leave, to reduce class sizes, to provide rent relief, and to increase staffing and resources in long-term care homes.
At every turn, the Premier spent his time pleading at the mic instead of leading.
That must end today.
The Premier cannot continue to delay in implementing strong public health measures.
And he can’t successfully implement stricter public health measures without the supports people and small businesses need.”
