Editor’s Edition: Mask changes an “important development”

Most of Ontario’s mask mandates will end on June 11, the province announced, as the COVID-19 situation continues to improve. This means that the provincial mask mandate will no longer apply to public transport and hospitals, but will still be in place in long-term care homes and retirement homes. “As masking requirements expire, organizations can implement their own policies,” Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Kieran Moore said in a statement. The decision is an “important development,” says Sean Speer of the Public Policy Forum, and one that he says will help resolve some lingering confusion about Ontario’s mixed bag of public health rules. In this episode of Editor’s Edition, Alicja Siekierska Speer of Yahoo Finance Canada discusses Ontario’s change in mask mandate. They also explore the current chaos at Toronto Pearson International Airport, the government’s response and what it means for Canada’s reputation on the world stage. They also talk about the Ontario election, what policies to expect from Premier Doug Ford, and how long it will take for a full return to office.
