Richmond Hill councillor allegedly broke quarantine after travelling from Aruba amid lockdown

According to Sheila Wang's follow up story, Richmond Hill Ward 2 Coun. Tom Muench allegedly broke quarantine and delivered “prizes” to two residents in person on New Year’s Eve after returning to Canada from Aruba.

The councillor previously said he travelled “for health reasons” without disclosing where he went and how long he had stayed despite repeated media requests.


According to the Richmond Hill Liberal Ward 2 Councillor Tom Muench says he travelled outside of Canada amid the provincewide lockdown when health officials advised against non-essential travel throughout the pandemic.

Tom Muench needs to be held up as an example. Now more then ever Richmond Hill residents need leadership that sets an example and guides us through these difficult times. If you seek public office you need to expect to be held to a higher level of accountability. He should take responsibility for his irresponsible behavior during this pandemic and resign.
