There shall be no followers in Scotiabank Area tomorrow night time for the Toronto Maple Leafs-Montreal Canadiens Recreation 7.
Ontario’s authorities shot down a proposal from Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown to permit a decreased capability, socially-distanced crowd of two,500 “totally vaccinated well being care and important staff” to Monday night time’s recreation “to thank them for his or her service in the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Brown posted several tweets and linked to a petition on the newly-created web site Hockey4Heroes.com, although it’s unclear how many individuals truly signed as the web site doesn’t present signatures.
“As you start to ease restrictions together with your three-step plan, I’m assured that the Toronto Maple Leafs would applaud this determination,” Brown wrote in a letter to David Williams, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Well being, who is ready to retire on June 25.
Inside just a few hours, the proposal was tossed apart.
“Right now, no spectators are allowed to attend video games in-person,” Dakota Brasier, Senior Communications Advisor and Press Secretary for the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Tradition Industries stated in an announcement.
“The province will proceed to comply with the recommendation of the Chief Medical Officer of Well being, different well being consultants and native public well being to find out when and whether it is secure for measures to be lifted primarily based off the Roadmap to Reopen,” Brasier added.
Recreation 7 puck drop is ready for 7 p.m. tomorrow night.
