“We got it wrong:” Ontario Premier Ford apologizes for increasing police powers, closing playgrounds

Ontario Premier Doug Ford will be holding a virtual press conference Thursday morning amid his isolation following a staff member who tested positive for COVID-19.

Details on what exactly the premier will speak to Ontarians about were not revealed.

Late Tuesday, Ford’s office said the premier was isolating after a staff member’s COVID-19 test came back positive. Ford’s test results came back negative.

The premier faced heavy criticism after revealing new measures and a stay-at-home order extension last week that included heavy police powers and the closure of outdoor amenities while falling short on calls for paid sick leave for essential workers.
