As the Official Opposition, we have been working to ensure that the provincial government is communicating with Ontarians about emergency preparedness planning related to COVID-19.

The Leader of the Opposition met with Premier Ford and other party leaders on March 11 for an update on the province’s response, and has called for the provincial government to release details of their plans with Ontarians.
