Ford warns of harsher COVID-19 restrictions
Ontario Premier Doug Ford said he "will not hesitate" to move forward to the next stage in the lockdown system and will make a decision on whether to do so by Friday after new COVID-19 modelling showed the province could see 6,500 new cases per day by mid-December.
Ford made the comments during an interview with CP24 on Thursday evening, saying he would receive a briefing from his health team in the morning and will then "make a decision."
"I can assure you I haven't hesitated to make a tough decision and I promise you I will not hesitate for a second if we have to go further," Ford said. "That is what we will do."
