Del Duca called for the return of the chief scientist

The leader of the liberal Party of Ontario, Steven Del Duca, has called Sunday for the return of the scientist-in-chief of the province.

Recall that the prime minister, Doug Ford has dismissed the chief scientist of Ontario, Molly Shoichet, in July 2018. The progressive conservative government had promised that he was going to find a replacement.

“I want the government to Ford and hired a new chief science officer as soon as possible. It should also strengthen the office of the chief scientist, for it relates directly to the prime minister,” said Del Duca.

According to Mr. Del Duca, a scientist-in-chief would have been a great resource for the prime minister and the government during the pandemic.

“We cannot repair the mistakes of the past, but while we look to the future and re-evaluate the long-term care and health care, it would be vital to include official scientific opinions.”

“This pandemic has revealed many cracks in our health system, including our ability to develop treatments and a possible vaccine. We need to fill gaps like these and create a resilient system that supports all Ontarians,” concluded Del Duca.

Steven Del Duca became the new liberal leader in Ontario to the result of his election on 8 march last year during the general Assembly of the party in Mississauga.
