On March 3, Conservative MP David Sweet joined MPP Roman Baber at Queen’s Park to demand an end to the provincial lockdown. The Flamborough-Glanbrook MP raised concerns over the negative mental health effects as well as substance abuse caused by the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, urging Ontario to move to the Green Zone.
“Lockdowns, by their nature, are a threat to mental health,” Sweet said. “The financial consequences that family businesses, entrepreneurs, and workers are experiencing because of lockdowns are huge.”
