MPP Daisy Wai began Monday Matters so that members of our community can learn about and have greater input into the initiatives led by our government. It is an opportunity to ask questions and raise your concerns directly with your elected officials while also meeting with and hearing from your friends and neighbours.
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented so many challenges and has affected everyone’s mental health, hence this month's theme - Mental Health amid the COVID-19 Pandemic.
This month's special guests are:
- Ontario's Associate Minister for Mental Health and Addictions, Michael Tibollo, will speak on our government’s initiatives to support the mental health of all Ontarians during these challenging times.
- York Region’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Karim Kurji, will provide us with updates on York Region’s COVID-19 response and will be able available to answer your questions.
- Members of Richmond Hill’s Muslim community will have the Community Spotlight as they share important aspects about their religion, culture, and community, while also detailing how their faith has helped them navigate the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
