Stay at Home order must be respected says Vanthof

Timiskaming-Cochrane MPP John Vanthof says as “imperfect” as it may be, the Province’s Stay at Home Order must be respected.

On Tuesday, Premier Ford held a press conference to outline the newest measures that were put in place to slow the spread of COVID.

Vanthof states “He prefaced it with a news conference on Friday where he stated ‘that the modelling was so dire, that we would fall off our chairs when we saw it.’ On this point I agree, the situation is dire. The time for action is now. The scenarios that we were all worried about in the spring are happening now. More people will die in long term care in the second wave than in the first, in some cases, under horrific conditions. Our healthcare system in many parts of the province is on the brink of collapse. Vaccines are on the way but will not be available for most for a few months. It is always darkest before the dawn and the next few months could be very dark. How the people of Ontario got here is a debate for another day.”
