Ontario Tories shoot down paid sick leave, reduced police powers

Among the measures announced Friday were a closure of all playgrounds as well as an order giving police the right to stop anyone to ask why they were out and request their home address. He says the federal government will deploy the Canadian Red Cross to help Ontario with their mobile vaccination teams.

The practice of carding - when police stop, question, and document people who aren't being investigated - disproportionately targeted marginalized communities in Ontario before it was banned in 2017. "An emergency benefit that offers more money, is easily accessible, immediately paid and that, for the duration of the pandemic, is available to essential workers - when they are sick, when they've been exposed, need time off to get tested, or when it's their turn to get vaccinated - will help limit spread", reads the brief. "So it's not a clear-cut answer in some people's minds".

"People are laying in crowded hospital hallways, struggling to breathe, and many thousands more will join them if we don't replace Doug Ford's plan", Horwath said in the release. "Every individual who is required to provide a police officer or other provincial offences officer with information shall promptly comply". "We may as well focus on areas where the virus is actually being transmitted, which is indoor venues, predominantly among essential workers that don't have the luxury of locking down or staying at home".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called on the Premiers of Atlantic Canada to help Ontario fight their third wave of COVID-19.

Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca accused Ford of "hiding from the outrage he caused with his reckless actions and anti-science agenda". "He should resign now before he makes things any worse".

Ontario residents 60 or over are now eligible for a vaccine and can book an appointment through the province's booking system . Adalsteinn Brown, co-chair of Ontario's science advisory panel, said in presenting the latest projections.

The Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table is a group of scientific experts and health care leaders who evaluate and report on emerging evidence relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic to keep government leaders informed. The rising caseload - 755 COVID-19 patients in intensive care on Monday - has pushed the province's hospitals to the brink.

The Office of the Premier says he was notified Monday to "be prepared" for delays to the two shipments of AstraZeneca vaccine that were expected from the federal government later this month and next month.

Ontario reported 4,250 new cases on Sunday.

When the labour minister was asked for details, Monte McNaughton would only say, "I'm not going to speculate but I can tell workers out there we've got their backs, we're going to get through this together".

Canada's most-populous province said on Sunday it would lower the minimum age for recipients of the AstraZeneca vaccine to 40 from 55.
