A member of the provincial vaccine task force has resigned after travelling outside the country in December.
In a statement, Premier Doug Ford’s office said he accepted the resignation of Linda Hasenfratz, CEO of automotive parts manufacturer Linamar.
The statement said Hasenfratz apologized for her decision to travel.
After the holidays, it was revealed that a slew of officials travelled out of country despite all levels of government asking Canadians to refrain from non-essential travel to stop the spread of COVID-19.
A survey also found that nearly half of Canadians visited with family or friends over the winter holiday period.
