In a statement, the New Democrat MPP Jill Andrew says Doug Ford is ” disrespecting workers once again” and adds that the government has now said no to permanent paid sick days over 25 times.

She goes on to says that “Doug Ford’s measly temporary three paid sick day program ends at the end of the year.”
