It appears that Premier Doug Ford has had enough of young people throwing parties in Ontario right now. Ford went into lecture mode on Tuesday, scolding millennials for breaking social distancing rules to attend big gatherings.

In typical dad fashion, Ford started by saying "all I do is brag about you guys," for being so smart.

"We have the brightest smartest people coming out of our colleges anywhere in the world," he said. But, with his compliment came a stern warning.

Just don't go to a party. Simple.

"It might not be you, but it's going to be your parents or your grandparents," he continued. "You're hurting people by doing this."

This comes after Ford expressed "shock" at the number of young people who are now testing positive for the disease, which is due in part to "COVID-19 fatigue" and parties.

On Tuesday, Ford said that 57% of new cases are people under the age of 39 and in their 20s.

The premier has been an outspoken critic on this issue in the past when large crowds showed up to party at beaches and in parks. 

“Guys, enough of the partying. Go back to what we were doing before, social distancing. Stay in your bubble and we will get through this thing together.”

Thanks, Dad.
