May has been a surprisingly positive month for Canada's economy—unless you are from Ontario, of course, which has managed to lose 64,500 jobs.
Doug Ford's Ontario is still in a steep decline when it comes to unemployment figures, with every single province adding jobs this month. Quebec, for instance, added a whopping 230,900, according to the CBC.
Canada as a whole managed to add some 290,000 in May, showing a sharp improvement from the two previous months. As a result of this, Canada has reclaimed 10 percent of jobs that were lost as a result of the pandemic.
Canada's unemployment rate now stands at 13.7 percent. A great number of those gains were in Quebec.
Much of Ontario's economic woes have to do with Doug Ford's prolonged lockdown, which has been again extended for another month.
Ford has been particularly outspoken against those who break the lockdown, calling them "yahoos" and being the first to condemn Torontonians for spending a summery day in the park.
Despite being Canada's most populous province and its economic centre, Ford still lags behind nearly every province when it comes to lifting the lockdown restrictions.
