Translated Summary: Ontario Minister of Transportation Caroline Mulroney launched a 511 app that will inform truck drivers of rest areas, construction, and road closures. Mulroney said Ontario's truck drivers are working hard to keep our supply chain strong and our shelves stocked throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. She said the 511 app makes it easier for drivers to find information about rest areas, construction, and road closures while travelling. The app is easy to use and customizable and features a drive mode that activates automatically. She said the Ontario government is committed to supporting the trucking industry. In a later segment, Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath called for help for the media. She said ethnic and community media are more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have been doing their part to provide the facts and stories people need. However, many ethnic and community media outlets are struggling without support and without much advertising revenue from the government. The Ontario NDP believes the provincial government should help by creating a stabilization fund for ethnic and community media and dedicating advertising dollars.
