Final note No sick days - which doctors have been calling for No playgrounds, soccer, golf - which no one has been calling for Ford blaming feds for lack of vaccines. Yes they're slow in coming - but health officials have always said we couldn't vaccinate our way out of 3rd wave
"We have put everything on the field now. Everything," says the Premier who failed to provide paid sick days, failed to address workplace transmission, but will close the playgrounds because he saw a lot of people at the park when he drove by.
This enhanced Ontario lockdown is not rooted in transmission risk. Playgrounds? Golf courses? Not where the spread is happening. This is about Ford political damage control optics after a failed year of inept pandemic control measures.
