Is there anything I can do or should I cut the tops off and let the suckers take over?

I had the same problem with my apricote and peach tree. The leaves curled up and were very deformed. I was told it wasn't bugs but a virus. I questioned what causes this and I was told that the virus is airborn and your plants can get it just from the wind blowing across the yard.

I was told the only thing you could do was to spray the plant with a solution that can be bought at Canadian Tire for Leaf Curl and you spray only in early spring before the buds start forming. They have a book in the garden centre showing leaf curl and it tells you what to spray on it and they sell the product you need for this.
trim off the soft stuff and take off the suckers.
