Ford’s Foot-Dragging on Vaccine Passports Is Putting Our Health and Economy at Risk

A Statement from Official Opposition NDP Leader Andrea Horwath

Ontario NDP Official Opposition Leader Andrea Horwath continues outlining plans to fight climate change

Doug Ford has put Ontario in a dangerous position headed into the fourth wave, lagging behind BC and Quebec on implementing desperately needed vaccine certificates.

Now instead of listening to the experts, small businesses, and everyday Ontarians, the Ford government is wasting more precious time bickering about the politics of this public health decision in cabinet

Afraid of angering the anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers in his political base, Ontario Premier continues to drag his feet on doing what Quebec and British Columbia have done – implement a vaccine certificate (passport) system to protect people and businesses that want to avoid another economically crippling lockdown.

Today we’re seeing Mr. Ford’s refusal to take action cause even more damage, by getting in the way of the Chief Medical Officer of Health giving Ontarians vital information on the pandemic.

Enough is enough.

Doug Ford needs to come out of hiding and act to protect public health now.
