Kaposy C. (27 Apr 2021). The legislative roots of Ontario's COVID-19 failure. Impact Ethics.

The Ontario government has seriously mishandled the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. In late January, the Ontario COVID-19 Science Advisory Table warned that there would be a potential disaster if the province did not get COVID-19 variants under control. However, Premier Doug Ford’s government waited until April 7 to issue a stay-at-home order, as the province exceeded 4000 daily cases of the infection.
