“On a day with 4,227 new cases of COVID-19, I’m once again pleading with Doug Ford to do the right thing and give all workers paid sick leave.”
A Statement on the ongoing COVID-19 disaster in Ontario from the Province’s Liberal Party
Posted April 9th, 2021 on Niagara At Large
TORONTO – Steven Del Duca, Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, issued the following statement:
“With surgeries being backlogged to make room for the wave of people with COVID-19, it’s clear Ontario has failed to prevent a catastrophe in ICUs.
The modelling provided to Doug Ford last month predicted this crisis, but he waited for the situation to become out of control before acting. Minister Jones confirmed as much in an interview yesterday.
Ontario Liberals have been calling for paid sick leave for months, but Doug Ford continues to ignore our calls. His negligence is to blame for the crisis in ICUs, and he continues to ignore basic measures that would save lives.
On a day with 4,227 new cases of COVID-19, I’m once again pleading with Doug Ford to do the right thing and give all workers paid sick leave.”
