Coronavirus: Doug Ford defends decision to not impose Ontario curfew

Ontario Premier Doug Ford defended the decision not to impose a curfew in the province as part of new COVID-19 public health restrictions, saying he believes in residents and that as soon as you tell people you’ve “lost trust” through a curfew, “you might as well throw in the white flag.” He said he’s never been in favour of a curfew because it would mean a hard lockdown, with cars not even driving around.

Solicitor General Sylvia Jones also argued that the stay-at-home order gives more authority to bylaw officers and other provincial enforcement officers to enforce the measures, such as dispersing gatherings.

Ford also said that he would come down on big box stores "like an 800-pound gorilla" if they are not following the proper measures of restrictions for in-store shopping. He also advised that if people need to go outside to stretch their legs or walk their dog, they can, but to stay home as much as possible.
