“(Ontario Premier Doug) Ford’s message (to anti-vaxxers) is: ‘It’s ok to wait it out instead of getting a vaccine.’” – Andrea Horwath, Ontario NDP Leader
A Statement from Ontario NDP Opposition Leader Andrea Horwath
Posted December 6th, 2021 on Niagara At Large
QUEEN’S PARK – Official Opposition Leader Andrea Horwath released the following statement in response to Doug Ford refusing during question period Monday to cancel his Jan. 17 end date for vaccine certificates:
“Vaccine certificates help to protect Ontarians and small businesses hard-hit by the pandemic — they’re a critical part of avoiding more lockdown measures.
“Doug Ford’s end date for vaccination certificates always was a dog whistle to anti-vaxxers. Mr. Ford’s message is: it’s ok to wait it out instead of getting a vaccine.
“Doug Ford had a chance today to fix that mistake by telling Ontarians we’ll keep using every tool we have to keep people safe for as long as we need them. Instead he chose to further embolden anti-vaxxers.
“Ontarians deserve better. We all need a premier who will put public health first. For the benefit of every vulnerable Ontarian anyone eligible must be vaccinated against COVID-19.”
