Consider the Emergencies Act. The situation in Ontario is critical.

Health care workers and others are sounding the alarm bell.

The Emergencies Act, applied to Ontario, could help ensure a more coordinated delivery of vaccines to those who need them most, as well as enabling workers to prevent the spread by taking paid sick days and time off to get vaccinated.

    Canada is not yet receiving enough vaccines and they have been slow to arrive. In some places, this means that vaccines are not available to those in danger. The most glaring example of this is in the City of Toronto, where the wealthiest neighbourhoods have higher rates of vaccination than neighbourhoods where racialized and working-class people live – and which have higher levels of COVID19 positivity.

    The public health advice is clear. The virus is spreading in workplaces. Paid sick days and paid vaccination leave is urgently needed.

    The stakes could not be higher. Doctors have called the current situation in Ontario a “catastrophe”.

    There is still time to change the course of the pandemic. There is still time to save lives. But Justin Trudeau must act now.

    Join Jagmeet in calling on Justin Trudeau to consider applying the Emergencies Act in Ontario, and convene a meeting with Opposition Leaders and Premiers to work together on solutions. We must come together and work as a united front against this catastrophic pandemic.

    Add your name to call on Justin Trudeau to consider the Emergencies Act, the situation in Ontario is critical.
