The “Ontario Made” program is moving into its second phase, announced Premier Doug Ford on Thursday in Barrie, Ont. The program, designed to assist provincial businesses amid Ontario’s economic recovery during the coronavirus pandemic, has seen over 4,600 products registered from 1,200 Ontario manufacturers, said Ford. Products registered will feature a logo indicating to consumers that it was manufactured in the province. When asked Thursday about the province’s free mental health supports offered throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically MindBeacon, the premier said he wasn’t aware patients were allegedly being turned away if they had a history of substance abuse and suicide attempts. Ford responded that the provincial government will be looking into the claim later that day. Ontario reported 934 new cases of coronavirus on Thursday, bringing the provincial total to 73,819. Thursday’s case count is an increase from Wednesday’s which saw 834 new cases and Tuesday’s at 827 cases. Active cases in Ontario now stand at 7,578. According to Thursday’s provincial report, 420 new cases were recorded in Toronto, 169 in Peel Region, 95 in York Region, 58 in Ottawa, 35 in Halton Region and 28 in Hamilton. All other public health units in Ontario reported under 25 new cases. Based on daily provincial data, Toronto set a new record for cases in a single day.
