Shout-outs to all of you doing good

“Hey Toronto! We are going to do this together and it’s going to be awesome.”

Now we know how high the stakes are: 100,000 COVID deaths in Ontario if we don’t do something.

But we ARE doing something. Lots of things big and small.

And if we keep it up, the pandemic could claim as few as 3,000.

That’s 97,000 people we can save.

We’re off to a heartening start. All across Toronto-St. Paul’s, and all across Ontario, we’re coming together in a way we haven’t seen for generations.

Neighbours are helping neighbours. Strangers are helping strangers. And we’re even seeing old political foes putting aside their partisanship to say as one: we can do this.

Hey Toronto! 😊❤️ Are you distressed at the prospect of 12 weeks of lock down? Take heart! First, I promise that your feelings will shift & that you can be happy & well during this period. We are going to do this together, & it’s going to be awesome. /1

“The @OntarioNDP are offering constructive ideas for the @ONgov to consider to help SMEs during this crisis. Relief for commercial renters & support for SMEs to access capital & finance remote work options are actions we are also recommending,” said @roccorossiTO
