In the announcement, Baber claims the risk of contracting COVID-19 outdoors is "exceedingly low" and that the regulations deny Ontarians their "fundamental freedoms."

"I sued the Attorney General of Ontario for our right to protest, pray & gather outdoors," the MPP states. 

The MPP has been highly critical of lockdown in the past, even going as far as to argue that it was "deadlier" than COVID-19 itself.
