Ontario Premier Doug Ford apologized to Ontarians Thursday morning, days after his government faced intense backlash for introducing a number of additional COVID-19 restrictions that were not recommended by health experts and then nixed earlier this week.
The province was trying to curb mobility in Ontario, he said.
“But we moved too fast,” Ford said, with some measures going too far.
“Simply put, we got it wrong. We made a mistake. These decisions, they left a lot of people really concerned,” Ford said.
“For that I am sorry, and I sincerely apologize.”
