Ontario cabinet minister Rod Phillips to resign seat, won’t seek re-election

The Canadian Press, Toronto News

High profile cabinet minister announced that he is resigning at the end of next month and won’t be seeking re-election. The long-term care minister said the timing of his announcement will allow Premier Doug Ford to appoint someone else to lead the ministry, which is currently overseeing a sector in crisis. Phillips will leave his post as the long-term care sector faces major challenges. More than 50 per cent of long-term care homes were experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks as of this Friday, January 14, 2022, and more staff had confirmed infections than at any other point in the pandemic.
