Justin Trudeau says Canada won't release pandemic projections just yet as Doug Ford promises full disclosure by Friday - 2020-04-02
After refusing to release projections for how the COVID-19 pandemic could play out in the coming weeks, Premier Doug Ford is promising full disclosure while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada won't release any potential scenarios until it's clearer which path the virus is likely to take.
At Queen's Park, Ford promised there will be a "full public briefing" by medical officials on Friday, with projections for the pandemic in the province that he warned will be "hard to hear."
It was an abrupt change of heart from one day earlier, when the premier declined to release projections and warned overestimating possible scenarios could "create a panic." But on Thursday, Ford said the government will share its projections in the name of transparency.
