Ontarians for Safe Schools started this petition to Premier Doug Ford

Opening Ontario elementary schools full time with full class sizes this fall will cause needless sickness and death among children, teachers and their families.

The Government of Ontario is not doing the testing it would need to measure the level of COVD-19 risk accurately in every part of the province, much less make an informed decision about whether, when, where or how schools should open. It has not even attempted the extensive planning, hiring and infrastructure investment that would mark any serious effort to to make even a part-time, socially distanced return to school safe.

A governing majority does not give the Ford government the right to put so many lives at risk. We urge the government to cancel its announced plans for schools to open this fall, then sit down with all of the stakeholders and conduct serious consultations about where we go next.

Parents, grandparents, teachers and anyone else who reads this petition: please take a minute to sign. We are being railroaded by politicians who are ignoring science and playing games with our health and our lives. Public health researchers and officials, we need you to speak out. Media outlets, we need your support. Don't let apathy turn Ontario into a Trumpian nightmare!
