The lobbying efforts of the mayors of both Mississauga and Brampton might be paying off as Ontario is expected to announce a quick move to step 3 of its re-opening plan.

UPDATE: Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton will move into step 3 of re-opening plan July 16.

Word out of Queen’s Park suggests that looser restrictions could begin as early as next Friday, July 16 which is a week earlier than had been anticipated.

This means that indoor dining, shopping, gym workouts, concerts and special events will be allowed to take place with masks and social distancing.

This comes despite the reason warnings of some health officials and provincial politicians not to rush the re-opening plans due to the rise of the Delta variant of COVID-19.

Still, most will see this as welcome news as both Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie and Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown have publicly urged Premier Doug Ford to speed up the re-opening process.
