Here are today’s new developments: 

Here are some concerns the Official Opposition is working on, and solutions we’re pushing for:

 

  • As Pride Month kicks off, Andrea Horwath issued a statement reaffirming the Official Opposition's commitment to working with the 2SLGBTQIA+  community to achieve progress when it comes to Queer health. 
  • The Official Opposition is joining frontline staff in calling for the Ford government to take over at a Sienna-owned long-term care home in Woodbridge, where reported staffing levels are dangerously low.
  • Official Opposition critic for Accessibility Joel Harden issued a statement marking National AccessAbility Week, in which he reiterated the Official Opposition's call for concrete support for Ontarians with disabilities during COVID-19. 
  • Official Opposition MPPs in London said the Ford government must not penalize the city's struggling child care centres for a recent change the province made to rules governing the centres' pay structure during the pandemic.
