QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner released the following statement after the Premier visited Linamar in Guelph:
“This crisis has shown us what is possible when we cooperate on urgent solutions to protect people.
I want to thank Linamar and other Guelph-based companies for turning on a dime to alter their assembly lines and manufacture the medical equipment we need to fight COVID-19.
One area where I agree with the Premier is that Ontario must have greater domestic capacity to manufacture such equipment.
The province should be supporting investments and innovation in medical products so that we are better prepared for the next wave and future emergencies.
Stocking the cupboards of our health system must be part of a smart recovery from COVID-19.”
