Ford Government’s half measures giving the fourth wave a chance to grow, Ontario NDP says

“(Ontario Premier Doug) Ford’s half measures show he’s catering to anti-vaccine sentiments within his party and supporters, and that he still doesn’t want to spend on COVID-fighting measures.” – Ontario NDP Official Opposition Leader Andrea Horwath

QUEEN’S PARK — Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said Doug Ford’s half measures on vaccines are giving the fourth wave a chance to grow in Ontario.

Instead, she’s calling for a vaccine certificate program to cover all non-essential activities — like gyms, bars and personal services.

“We can crush this wave, and prevent more heartache, more loss and more shutdowns,” said Horwath.

“But to do that, this time Ford has to stop messing around with half measures. It’s already late, but today he can announce mandatory vaccines for health care and education workers, and a provincially-regulated vaccine certificate system for Ontario.

“We need to protect people’s health, and protect our progress against COVID-19. Folks who have done the right thing and gotten their shot deserve to dine, shop and play without fear. And local businesses and their customers should not be left to figure out their own system.”

Horwath said she believes Ford’s half measures show he’s catering to anti-vaccine sentiments within his party and supporters, and that he still doesn’t want to spend on COVID-fighting measures. According to the Financial Accountability Officer, Ford withheld more than $10 billion last year that was earmarked for pandemic fighting.

  1. If I have to put up with another year of this sh!t I think I will go nuts!
    Mandatory vaccinations and vaccine certificates are a must if people won’t use common sense.
    Rules are for the common good. You can’t drive 120 in a 50 zone because you think it’s your right.
    Take away their OHIP card.
    The snowbirds are already whining about regulations. Boo hoo.
    Don’t reward people for bad behaviour and stop pandering to selfish, uneducated idiots who can’t walk and chew gum.
    This is a public health issue, not a political one.
