Ex­pect tur­bu­lence

The Daily Press (Timmins) - - OPINION -

Wel­come to the Ford Fol­lies. the newly elected pro­gres­sive (?) Con­ser­va­tives have hit the deck run­ning.

to help stu­dents in the 21st cen­tury, they’ve di­alled back cur­ricu­lums to a time that ig­nores the in­ter­net.

to show On­tario is “open for busi­ness” they can­cel govern­ment con­tracts and play loose with govern­ment re­bates (land­ing and los­ing in court).

they plan to waste $30 mil­lion on a con­sti­tu­tional case most ac­knowl­edge is not winnable. they’ve squan­dered money los­ing to the City of toronto and tesla. they’re fight­ing du­bi­ous bat­tles with Opseu, etfo, ba­sic in­come re­cip­i­ents, the Cana­dian Civil lib­er­ties as­so­ci­a­tion, and the lgbtq com­mu­nity.

and this just bor­ders on lu­nacy: Ford has de­cided to sus­pend the Char­ter of rights and Free­doms here in On­tario by us­ing the not­with­stand­ing clause af­ter the On­tario Su­pe­rior Court ruled his coun­cil-slash­ing was un­con­sti­tu­tional.

buckle up. the next four years could be a bumpy ride. Ron Hod­gins, St. Mary’s
