Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Ford says AG report ‘undermines’ Ontario health team | FULL” – below is their description.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford took aim at the recently-released Auditor General’s report on the province’s response to COVID-19, saying the report “undermines” Ontario’s health team. Ford also defended chief medical officer Dr. David Williams against allegations in the report that he is not directing the response to the pandemic, saying there “is no daylight” between him and Williams. “Stick with looking for value for money. Stick with the job we hired you for,” Ford said. Ford also delivered a message to the owner of a Etobicoke barbecue restaurant that defied the province’s lockdown order and opened for in-person dining, telling him he is putting people’s lives in jeopardy. “Buddy, let me tell you something— you need to shut down,” he said. The premier also urged people across the province to celebrate the holidays within their own households, telling those that live alone to come together with just one other household so they won’t be alone on Christmas.
