Ontario Premier Doug Ford on Thursday discussed how other regions in the province not currently in a modified Stage 2 could have stricter measures applied once again if the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise.
Ford said his government is keeping a close eye on York Region, where cases have continued to climb, adding that it’s “concerning” and that the region is “teetering” at the moment.
Ford was joined by the president of the Treasury Board Peter Bethlenfalvy and also talked about a projected $37 billion deficit for Ontario in 2021. The premier said they will be “driving efficiencies,” explaining how the province can save money in different ways.
Ford also said he is giving “warning number two” to third-party delivery companies charging huge commissions to restaurants.
Ontario reported 721 new cases of the coronavirus on Wednesday with no new deaths.
