The State of Emergency in Ontario has resulted in the highest unemployment rates in generations, the mass closure and loss of small, family-owned businesses, the elimination of people's hard-earned life savings, and is placing an immeasurable strain on the mental health of thousands throughout Ontario. In addition the State of Emergency unnecessarily has kept shuttered our healthcare system leaving hundreds of thousands of Ontarian's without vital care resulting in preventable deaths or other critical health complications.
It's time to responsibly re-open our economy, end government by decree, and restore our democratic voice by resuming the Legislature and all its functions!
