Statement by Official Opposition NDP Leader Andrea Horwath

Official Opposition NDP Leader Andrea Horwath released the following statement in response to the Ford government's decision to prorogue the legislature:

“In the face of alarming Science Table data that shows the fourth wave of COVID-19 rising, Doug Ford’s decision to prorogue the legislature for three weeks is an unprecedented abdication of responsibility during a crisis.

It’s bad enough that Doug Ford has gone into hiding for over a month, now he is choosing to hide his entire government.

Whether you are a parent, student or educator worried about a safe September, a small business or worker hanging on during a precarious recovery, or a health care worker on the frontlines of the fight against the fourth wave, Doug Ford has chosen once again to leave everyday Ontarians on their own.”
