Ontario Premier Doug Ford is set to make an announcement on Thursday with the associate minister of children and women’s issues.

Ford with Associate Minister Jill Dunlop, will also be joined by Health Minister Christine Elliot.

Since the long weekend, the premier has been addressing Ontario’s back-to-school plan and defended his government’s decision to not reduce classroom sizes for elementary students when school starts in September.

While secondary students will have class cohorts of around 15 students, on alternate days, or alternate schedules, the same is not happening for elementary age children.

“We have more guidelines in place than anyone in the country… I’ll do whatever it takes to protect the kids. At the end of the day, who’s responsible? This guy right here, I’m responsible. I personally think we have the best plan in the entire country,” Ford said on Wednesday.

The daily press briefing will be held at Queens Park at 1 pm.
