Doug Ford scales back funding to 'support the safe re-opening of schools', leaving local school boards to shoulder extra costs

Despite the Delta COVID-19 variant being more dangerous to children than earlier variants, Doug Ford's government is spending $133 million less on "implementing public health protocols in schools."

Shortly before the legislature broke for the summer, Ontario Education Minister Stephen Lecce promised the public that the Ford government would redouble efforts to stop kids and school staff from getting infected by COVID-19, pledging new investments to hire nurses and an "enhancement" of classroom cleaning protocols.
