Premier Doug Ford, who’s reportedly meeting with cabinet today to discuss mandatory vaccines for healthcare and education workers, appeared virtually at a conference of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario.
“You only need to look south to see what can happen if we let our guard down, and how quickly a variant can devastate an unvaccinated population, COVID will be something we live with for a while longer.”
Mayor John Tory and all the G-T-H-A mayors say mandatory vaccinations for hospital and long-term care workers would better protect some of Ontario’s most vulnerable residents.
“I look forward to the province’s announcement, I believe this represents a good step forward, it is the right thing to do and I commend the province.”
The official word is expected Tuesday from the province’s top doctor.
Tory also sent his sympathies to everyone impacted by the earthquake in Haiti, saying he visited the impoverished country with the Red Cross after the last earthquake to help work on a documentary.
