Phillips and his wife left Canada on Dec. 13 and are still abroad, according to his spokesperson, Emily Hogeveen. His location was not revealed.

Ford said Phillips’ decision to travel iscompletely unacceptable– given that Ontario’s government last month issued guidelines urging its residents to stay home in order to curb the spread.

I have let the minister know that his decision to travel is completely unacceptable and that it will not be tolerated again – by him or any member of our cabinet and caucus,” Ford said in a statement.
