FORD DECLINES NDP CALL TO REVIEW VACCINE EXEMPTIONS
Premier Doug Ford says he won’t get involved in people’s personal medical records. He made the comments in question period Wednesday, responding to the NDP urging that the premier review the two medical exemptions from COVID-19 vaccines among his caucus members. Ontario’s chief medical officer of health has said the rate of legitimate medical exemptions should be about 1-5 in 100,000 people. In Ford’s Progressive Conservative caucus of 70, there are two with medical exemptions. NDP Leader Andrea Horwath called that “statistically curious.” Ford announced that everyone in his caucus had to be vaccinated, but both Lindsey Park, pictured, who represents Durham, and Christina Mitas, from Scarborough Centre, presented medical exemptions.
