Statement from NDP on Ford’s long overdue decision to address occupations and blockades

Published on February 11, 2022
OTTAWA — Official Opposition NDP Leader Andrea Horwath released the following statement:
“Premier Doug Ford has had the power all along to stop the insurrection, and he chose not to use it.
Two weeks ago, he could have taken action — before people lost two weeks of income, and health care workers were harassed in the streets, and before truckers trying to deliver food and medical supplies were stuck at the border for days and our supply chain was squeezed.
Doug Ford has been refusing to use his powers, and withholding resources. 
Until peace has been restored, I will continue to push every hour that the powers Ford has are actually used to end these illegal, dangerous occupations.”
