Horwath backs Science Table call for circuit breaker

Published on December 17, 2021

HAMILTON — In response to new COVID modelling data, Official Opposition NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is supporting the science table call for a circuit breaker and is backing their call to urgently reduce everyone’s contacts by 50 per cent:
“The newest Science Table projections are scary for us all.
Doug Ford avoided action while Omicron bulldozed its way across Ontario. He put us in a position where we need a circuit breaker to avoid completely overwhelming our hospitals and causing shut downs for schools and businesses.
Reducing capacity everywhere is now our best chance to avoid shutdowns.
Doug Ford needs to tell us today what he’s doing — we do not have time to waste.”
