Ontario premier continues to plead for smaller Thanksgiving celebrations

Ontario Premier Doug Ford began his remarks at a press conference on Wednesday by reminding the public to only celebrate Thanksgiving with the people in your household, something he said he will be doing this year as well.

Ford did admit that as Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Eileen de Villa, continues to caution the public about COVID-19 spread in restaurants and bars, communication across provincial, municipal and federal jurisdictions could be more aligned.

“Am I going to destroy 7,600 businesses over 20 people?” the premier said. “We’re going to target the people who are bad actors out there.”
