While the pandemic may still be weighing on Doug Ford’s shoulders, the premier’s finally had his COVID coif cut.
Normally that’s not news, but these days it makes head-lines.
”About five months now but boy, it feels good to get a haircut,” said Doug Ford as she sat in the chair at Mastronardi Barbering in Leamington.
The premier had promised to hold off on a trip to the barber shop until all of Ontario was in Stage 2 of reopening.
While most of the province had entered June 12 with the GTA following a few weeks later, the southwestern Ontario farming communities of Kingsville and Leamington remained in Stage 1 until July 8 because of outbreaks involving seasonal workers.
”They were the last to open up and I always said I am not going to get my haircut until everyone can get their hair cut,” Ford added.
His trip to Windsor-Essex is part of a summer tour to acknowledge and thank businesses and individuals who’ve stepped up during the pandemic.
