He said that Trudeau and Ford "need to stop blaming one another - and just get the job done." The "job" that he is referring to includes paid sick days, vaccinations, and worker protections.

On Wednesday, April 28, Peel's Medical Officer of Health said that the region is halfway to reaching herd immunity after delivering over half a million COVID-19 vaccine doses.
