A change.org petition is garnering thousands of signatures, calling for ski hills across Ontario to remain open.

The petition, which was started Monday night, is calling on Premier Doug Ford to keep the province's ski hills open throughout the pandemic.

It says skiing is the safest sport to participate in, with face coverings, mandatory space between patrons, along with riding chair lifts with members of your household only.

It claims without supporting ski hills during lockdown or the pandemic, that we may lose some of the ski resorts.

The petition has over 14,000 signatures as of Tuesday morning.

All of Ontario will be in lockdown as of Saturday.
