Bishop of Huron Rt. Rev. Todd Townshend urged Premier of Ontario Doug Ford on April 26 to fight for paid sick days for essential workers.
“We learned today that the provincial government has again voted against paid sick days for essential workers. We strongly urge you to fight for this crucial way to protect public health”, stated Bishop Townshend in his letter sent to Premier Ford expressing his hope that an on-going paid sick leave program may be seen as a positive legacy of this difficult time.
