Ontario Liberals Call For Mask Extension And Expansion To Schools, Pharmacies And Grocery Stores

“Ford’s Conservatives are still planning to end all mask mandates in long-term care homes and hospitals on April 27th – this is a huge mistake.”                                                                                             – Ontario Liberal Party Leader Steven Del Duca

A Statement by Steven Del Duca, Leader of Ontario Liberal Party

Posted April 7th, 2022 on Niagara At Large

TORONTO — Ontario Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca has issued the following statement:

“With COVID case counts now skyrocketing, Ontarians deserve science, not silence from their provincial government. Doug Ford’s Conservatives must stop muzzling the Chief Medical Officer of Health and restore his regular media conferences that ended over a month ago.

“Ford’s Conservatives are still planning to end all mask mandates in long-term care homes and hospitals on April 27th – this is a huge mistake. Mask mandates need to remain until this 6th wave wanes and be expanded to include all essential indoor settings such as schools, pharmacies and grocery stores.

“Speaking of schools, they are now ground zero for COVID spread. Ford and Lecce’s failures have made them our weakest link in containing COVID. In addition to requiring masks to be worn, the Ford government’s lack of effort to increase our poor childhood vaccination rates needs to change.

“Finally, it’s also time Ontarians stopped being forced to guess if they’re sick or contagious. Ontario Liberals demand that Ford Conservatives make PCR tests accessible to all Ontarians.

Doug Ford is failing to keep Ontarians safe. It’s time he got back to work.”

  1. Sadly, you’re correct about the mask mandates and the continued spread of COVID. Let’s not encourage Doug Ford to “get back to work” though. That only means that he will pass more legislation allowing developers to destroy our province. Let’s just work together to boot out the bum!
