Ontario Premier Doug Ford echoed complaints from thousands of ‘Freedom Truckers’ across Canada this week, telling reporters the world is “done” with Covid and people are simply ready to get back to normal.
“There’s rabble-rousers, and there are just hard-working people that just don’t believe in it, and that’s their choice,” Ford said Tuesday. “This is about democracy and freedoms and liberties. I hate as a government telling anyone what to do, we just have to get out of this and move forward and protect the jobs.”
“Everyone’s done with this, like, we are done with it,” Ford added. “Let’s just start moving on, cautiously. The world’s done with it, let’s just move forward.”
“We also know that it doesn’t matter if you have one shot or 10 shots, you can still catch COVID-19,” he said. “We just have to be careful, make sure we wash our hands and move forward.”
