Honourable Doug Ford, Office of the Premier
Legislative Building, Queen’s Park
Toronto, ON M7A 1A1
Dear Premier Ford,
I was pleased to read of your support for the addition of rapid testing to the safe and healthy border control measures here in Ontario.
Unifor has been advocating for a full-blown industry support package for the air transportation industry since the start of the pandemic and subsequent border closures. With a 96% drop in GDP between February and April of this year and no healthy rebound in sight, the air transportation industry is poised to be the industry most heavily affected by the pandemic and subsequent economic crisis.
