Niagara police said Saturday they are investigating alleged threats made to the region’s medical officer of health that were posted on social media.
“We are aware of the social media posts in reference to Dr. (Mustafa) Hirji (Niagara’s medical officer of health) that have been reported in the media,” Niagara police tweeted. “We will not be commenting any further at this time regarding that investigation.”
The alleged threats were posted on Facebook the same day as the Ontario government announced that the stay-at-home order will be lifted in 27 more public health units next week, moving the regions back to the colour-coded framework for COVID-19 restrictions.
Niagara was the only region to be placed in the grey-lockdown category, where retail businesses are allowed to reopen with strict capacity limits, but most other things have to stay closed.
