The Ontario government will meet on Tuesday as Premier Doug Ford requests an extension to the current state of emergency in the province.

Ford said Education Minister Stephen Lecce will be providing more details on the announcement in the coming days.

“That does not mean that the year’s cancelled,” Ford said.

“The minister of education will be out over the next couple days.”
