April 7, 2021 Newsletter: Stay at Home Order

Published on April 9, 2021

Dear friend,

Ontario will be under a province wide stay-at-home order starting at midnight tonight. This step is necessary, but it should never have to come to this. The government walked into the third wave with eyes wide open. They knew that the variants were spreading rapidly. But they refused to keep people safe with paid sick days, mobile testing, and an equitable vaccine rollout.This stay-at-home order doesn’t apply to essential workers in the most high-risk workplaces. These COVID-19 heros are are going into work every day, while waiting months for a vaccine. Many are going without paid sick days. I am calling on the government to stop the spread of COVID-19 by prioritizing high-risk essential workers for vaccination. I am also calling for:  Paid sick days for all workers   Paid time off to get vaccinated   On-site workplace testing and vaccination clinics

 

 

 

Hoping your family and loved ones stay safe,
