Ontario PC MPP Dodges Questions About Doug Ford Eliminating Paid Sick Days By Calling in Sick - 2018-11-05
According to the Chatham Daily News, the southwestern Ontario MPP developed a sudden illness shortly after members of a local labour group paid a visit to Nicholls' constituency office to deliver a petition voicing concern about Ford's move to eliminate paid sick days and cancel a raise for minimum wage workers.
After the group went into the constituency office and asked to speak with Nicholls so they could deliver signatures opposing Ford's changes to Ontario's labour laws, the MPP's executive assistant called police.
Police reportedly quizzed the labour group about their intentions, namely whether they were planning to "block the parking lot." After a brief conversation, the officer left the scene without incident, telling them if they were simply at the constituency office to supply or receive information, then that is "wonderful."
