Ford Has Recklessly Chosen Policing and Martial Law Over Public Health

“This is an egregious misuse of his authority and it cannot be allowed to stand. I will do everything I can to defend our Charter rights and stand up against Doug Ford’s dangerous decisions.”                          – Ontario Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca

A Statement By Steven Del Duca On The 39th Anniversary Of The Charter Of Rights And Freedoms

Posted April 17th, 2021 on Niagara At Large

Here is a document Ontario Premier Doug Ford and his Conservatives appear to know very little about. He certainly doesn’t call for police to pull us over at random and demand to know where we are going..

TORONTO, Ontario – Steven Del Duca, Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, issued the following statement:

“Today (this April 17th, 2021), on the 39th anniversary of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, I demand that Doug Ford reverse his unconscionable decision to inappropriately enlist Ontario’s police services to do his dirty work.

Public health leaders, science table members, municipal leaders and all opposition parties have called on Ford to deliver paid sick leave to stop the spread of virus, and he’s refused.

Instead, he’s recklessly chosen policing over public health — a move that will needlessly target racialized Ontarians who are already shouldering a disproportionate share of the pandemic’s negative impact.

This is an egregious misuse of his authority and it cannot be allowed to stand. I will do everything I can to defend our Charter rights and stand up against Doug Ford’s dangerous decisions.”
