Both the Ontario NDP and the Liberals are set to introduce bills to create safety zones around institutions such as hospitals and schools to protect them from anti-vaccination harassment.
NDP leader Andrea Horvath says health care workers need not worry about “a string of hatred and bitterness running through” while going to work to save lives.
She says she’s glad liberals “jumped on board” with her idea, which she first raised in August in what she called an organized campaign to target small businesses implementing public health measures.
Solicitor General Sylvia Jones says Ontario has seen limited protests, and workers have not been prevented from entering those places “to any extent”.
She says she will look into the bills that are introduced, but notes that intimidation and intimidation are already criminal offenses.
Liberal leader Steven Del Duca says that even though the government says it does not support the creation of safety zones, it is important to keep moving forward as Premier Doug Ford reverses his position on several other measures during the pandemic. Have given.
