Ford adds Stage 2 is about finding ways to get life back to normal.
"I know the people of Ontario, you have been very, very patient and as much as Stage 2 will be focused on getting people back to work, it is also about finding ways to get life back to normal this summer, even if it's a little different than before. I look forward to sharing more details early next week."
