The premier of Ontario is giving a press conference at 1:00PM ET - in 8 minutes.

I have a zoom meeting partway through it, but I'll tweet whatever I can until then. Hopefully the Premier will be on time.
The location of today's circus.
The presser is at a vacination clinic. The lady in charge says the clinic has been continuously booked since it opened. 👍
Do we really need this preamble from random people before every presser the premier gives though?

This isn't an awards show, just open it yourself.
"It is now my privilege to invite the Premier of Ontario to say some remarks."

Ford says they'll remain nimble and never hesitate...
He saw the people in the malls he left open and he is shocked. They will review how to prevent this.

What is there to review? Just close them.
"Co-ved vaccine" 😂
Follow his meagre restrictions please.

He says kinda. I put the meagre myself.
He drank water in a really creepy way that I will not be gifing and now its time for questions.
The SG says the hamilton PHU is doing 65+ people now. This doesn't mean they are done 70+. Please go for your vaccine.
(SG = solicitor general)

Niagra PHU is vaccinating teachers. The reporter asking seems annoyed by this...?
Ford says many elderly people haven't booked appointments and they need to.

Maybe if you stopped going on TV saying there is no vaccine??
He says 60+ need to book but in Ottawa you only can if you're 70+ 😒
My Mom is 60 and on chemo yet she doesn't qualify for a vaccine, so I don't know why he's blaming people. Clearly his system is the issue.
He is asked about the letter from local PHUs for a stay-at-home order.

He says its day by day and they shut down the province. I guess the malls are not part of the province?
I will not be repeating any of his finger pointing at the prime minister.
The premier says he was hoping people wouldn't be going into Yorkdale. Tells people to follow all protocals.

The malls being open is your protocal!!
The premier says schools are safe. The kids get infected in the community, not the schools.

Okay, but once they get infected and they go to the school does the virus disappear?
Reporter asks why the Premier doesn't do a stay-at-home order now.

The premier says the virus is moving so they have to be quick and nimble. 🤷‍♀️
What an absolute dingus. It's still unbelievable to me that people voted for this man.
Last question, reporter asked about vaccine appointments being unfilled.

He says he respectfully disagrees. We're doing more than anyone. Thats not really true actually.
The premier is asked if they will prioritize vaccinating educators.

Ford: Everything is on the table
Done. 💩📺

We are in the government building for the provincial presser today.

As it should be everyday. Ridiculous that the Premier is usually out and about at different locations each time. Image
By we I obviously mean the cpac people. I am in my home.

As we all should be if possible, to protect those who can't.
It's 2:42 where is the Premier

This is an example of political discourse becoming less civil? Also shocking?
What was this then? "Notley's office was alerted by an insurance company specializing in pre-planned funerals that a funeral home had received a completed application in the premier's name — for her own funeral."…
