It seems they are. Doug Ford was saying that despite advice from a panel of scientists, he is moving forward with re-opening the Province:

Quote"We're ready to move forward, but we have to do it cautiously," Ford told reporters in Ajax, Ont. "We can't just jump into it and just open everything up tomorrow." He added that his government has invested billions of dollars to expand the capacity of the province's health-care system.
Earlier in the day, a panel of scientists that advises the provincial government said that COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and intensive care admissions will likely rise following this week's reopening. The panel said new modelling shows there will be "prolonged'' pressure on the health system.

I'm also glad that Quebec did a small about face on a few things:

QuoteIn a surprising about-face, Quebec Premier Fran├žois Legault also announced he is scrapping a plan to tax people who are not vaccinated against COVID-19. Legault said the plan announced last month for a "significant" financial penalty had proven divisive, and he wants to bring Quebecers together. 
"It is time to rebuild bridges between Quebecers. It's time to reach out to each other," Legault told reporters in Quebec City.



Is it to soon, or should we take more precautions. :ja
