Ontario’s opposition leaders are criticizing Premier Doug Ford for a comment he made about immigrants.
Ford was in Tecumseh, Ont., near Windsor, Ont., on Monday to announce funding for the planning of a new hospital in the region.
After the announcement, Ford launched into a familiar line about Ontario’s biggest problem being a shortage of workers, particularly in the trades and construction.
He said people who want to work should come to Ontario.
“You come here like every other new Canadian has come here, you work your tail off,” Ford said.
“If you think you’re coming to collect the dole and sit around, not gonna happen. Go somewhere else. You want to work, come here. We have so much work, we can’t keep up with it right now.”
