QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner released the following statement after a testing centre in Kitchener reached capacity at 7:15am:
“Ontarians are worried about their symptoms and the Ford government is denying them the COVID-19 tests they were promised.
The Premier can ignore reality all he wants, but the testing situation is going from bad to worse as people are turned away at the crack of dawn.
The failure to anticipate a surge in testing demand as schools and workplaces reopen is totally unacceptable seven months into this pandemic.
The Premier spends every day boasting to the cameras, while behind the scenes he is depriving the public health system the resources it needs.
Ontario is playing catch-up at the worst possible time and the Premier owns the consequences.”
