News and Updates 

Here are today’s new developments: 

Here are some concerns the NDP is working on, and solutions we’re pushing for: 
  • MPP Sol Mamakwa, NDP critic for Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation said the Ford government must consult with First Nations before allowing businesses to reopen in the North. Further, the government must do more to address the issues that make First Nations more vulnerable to COVID-19 in the first place, like overcrowded housing and lack of hospitals.
  • NDP Auto Insurance critic Tom Rakocevic and Brampton North NDP MPP Kevin Yarde say Ford needs to step up and lower auto insurances rates. "Major auto insurers have admitted that driving and accidents are down - In Toronto alone, accidents are down by 74 per cent," Rakocevic said in a joint press release.
