Thomas: Ford’s fortunes depend on fixing long-term care


OPSEU/SEFPO President Warren (Smokey) Thomas told Sudbury.com the premier’s political future depends on his handling of the report on long-term care homes during the first wave of the pandemic.

“My union, we won’t let it go and I don’t think any union will let it go,” Thomas is quoted as saying. “I think if the premier wants any chance at a re-election next year, he’s got to show that he’s got that heart he showed early on, and that he’s fixing long-term care.”

“The premier’s in a position to fix it and if he doesn’t, I think he’ll pay a dear price at the ballot box.”
