Doug Ford's 95-year-old mother-in-law has tested positive for coronavirus confirms the premier's office.
Ford's mother-in-law is a resident at a long-term health care facility in Ontario. These homes have borne the brunt of the coronavirus pandemic. Indeed, over 50 percent of cases in Canada derive from long-term care homes.
In a press conference today, Ford started by saying he was glad the federal government approved the provincial request for military aid, saying that they have literally brought in the troops.
"Nothing is off the table," said Ford.
"We're all in on this fight," Ford continued. During the address, Ford had a somber moment, expressing that the system needed to be changed to ensure that those in long term care homes were protected.
