Toronto Mayor John Tory plans to virtually meet with the other mayors of the GTA on Monday to discuss an agreement to encourage the use of face masks in most public settings, according to CP24.

“We’re going to have a discussion with the mayors of the GTHA. It would be better if we could act together,” said Tory.

The City of Toronto has not previously had the authority to mandate mask use said Tory, however they are other jurisdictions in Ontario that have already done that like the Public Health Unit in Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph.

“People have come to understand that the best way you can protect other people from the possibility you have the virus and are spreading it through water droplets is wearing a mask,” said Tory in an interview with CP24.

Markham Mayor Frank Scarpittie has asked that the same measure be enacted by York Regional Council, which would require mandatory face masks in all indoor settings.

Tory will speak with the Mayors of the GTA and Hamilton today to try and come up with a collaborative plan moving forward. So far, Doug Ford's provincial government has been encouraging the use of face masks but has not mandated them.
