Ontario to introduce bill to extend some emergency measures over the next year

Queens Park

Ontario is set to introduce new legislation to enable the extension of some pandemic emergency orders over the next year.

The proposed law expected today, would allow the government to extend or amend some emergency orders a month at a time, with the law expiring a year after it's passed. 

If the bill passes, the government could move parts of the province back to earlier stages of the pandemic lockdown if required.
