During question period, Premier Doug Ford was pressed to answer why he ingored this same advice from the province’s science table.
“And when I asked Dr. Brown from the science table, he has a little chart YES or NO for what you can do and what you can’t do, ” Ford explained. “And when it was outdoor playgrounds it had a big NO and YES if everyone wore a mask, but how many people when you drive by those playgrounds do you see wearing a mask, you don’t see anyone wearing a mask.”
But the Ontario Medical Association also says the province is not yet ready to lift the stay-at-home order next week while there are still 2,000 people testing positive every day.
