Brampton City Council is urging the Province to move the City into the red – control zone and out of lockdown. 

According to a statement from Mayor Patrick Brown, Brampton City Council has unanimously endorsed a motion from Councillor Paul Vicente to move Brampton into the Province’s penultimate restriction zone as soon as possible. 

In the statement, Brown cited a decrease in cases, as well as an increase in vaccinations and a decline in the virus’ positivity rate as justification for moving Brampton out of lockdown. 

“Our most vulnerable residents have been vaccinated, and our hospital capacity is the best it has been in months,” he said.
