The ongoing occupation of Ottawa is of deep concern. Over the last two weeks, I have been urging the Ontario government to take action as well as pressing all levels of government to come together and cooperate in order to provide solutions to keep our community safe and put an end to the lawlessness and disorder.
Last Friday, the Ontario Liberal Ottawa Caucus called for the Premier and the Solicitor General to become involved and enact existing legislation (Bill 68) that would allow excessive costs to be billed to organizers of protests. It would also send a clear message to the organizers – enough is enough. (Click here to see the letter)
In light of the Premier declaring a State of Emergency across Ontario today, the new measures are welcome but it has taken the Premier and his government far too long to get involved to help the residents and businesses of Ottawa. I will continue to press the provincial government to come to the table with other levels of government.
I know residents of Ottawa South continue to have concerns about schools being targeted, the RA Centre having to shut down operations this weekend as well as the new protest staging site at 1500 Bronson Avenue. I will continue to bring all of your concerns to our partners at the Ottawa Police and the City as well as the Ontario government.
