Doug Ford is going on tour.
During his daily briefing, Premier Ford announced he would be crisscrossing the province in an effort to thank the businesses and individuals that stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over the coming months, Ford and a select group of government representatives will be visiting communities across Ontario. It is expected this Premier’s Tour will hear ideas from locals on how the provincial government can help in recovery while announcing supports for made-in-Ontario products as they go.
The announcement of this provincial tour came while Ford was at the headquarters of Eclipse Innovation, a Cambridge-based manufacturer that retooled to manufacture n95 masks. The company is to receive just over $1.4 million to scale up its operations.
