Pandemic Response

  • Working with Stone Soup Network, fundraised to buy and distribute 15,000 KN95 masks to food banks, mutual aid groups, and those most in need in our community.
  • Led the charge to make sure big retailers like Walmart and Shoppers Drug Mart weren’t only giving out free rapid tests with purchase.
  • Tabled the Pandemic Preparedness Act to ensure Ontario is better prepared for future public health crises. The bill would guarantee at least 75% provincial funding for local public health unit programs and services and a regular provincial review of pandemic preparedness.
