Special to WC Online

ONTARIO – The provincial government will extend Ontario’s state of emergency another 28 days.

The Ontario legislature will sit today (April 14) to extend a state of emergency in the province for another 28 days. Premier Doug Ford announced the session today saying it is too early to start lifting any restrictions in the fight against COVID-19.

In previous sessions, only a limited number of politicians have been required to attend the vote in order to respect the need for physical distancing.

The government is expected to pass five other pieces of legislation to change some regulations for school boards, post-secondary institutions and municipalities during the pandemic.
