      Thanks for your comment. The Air Bus factory would fall under Section 23 of Essential Business.

      Manufacturing 23. Businesses that extract, manufacture, process and distribute goods, products, equipment and materials, including businesses that manufacture inputs to other manufacturers ( e.g. primary metal/ steel, blow molding, component manufacturers, chemicals, etc. that feed the end-product manufacturer), regardless of whether those other manufacturers are inside or outside of Ontario, together with businesses that support and facilitate the movement of goods within integrated North American and global supply chains.

    There is no reason for the Boat Launches along the Niagara River to be closed.
    Being in nature is healthy for your immune system and helps you to de-stress. If you open all the boat launches people won’t be congested a only a few that were open before.
    That was very backward.

    Getting your boat from your truck and trailer in to the water is no more unsafe than walking through the Walmart parking lot.

    Please open the boat launches.
    We pay taxes and it’s our civil right.
