Be­ware Doug Ford’s no-class act


With a venge­ful right-winger like Doug Ford run­ning amok on any pro­gres­sive pub­lic pol­icy that hap­pens into his sight, it’s got to be of se­ri­ous con­cern for all left-of-cen­trem­inded peo­ple, whether NDP, Lib­eral or Green.

And just in time for the hol­i­day sea­son, what’s our grinch of a pre­mier’s lat­est mean-spir­ited ca­per? Why, it’s none other than mak­ing off with On­tario Place, the peo­ple’s cher­ished recre­ational jewel on the lake.

The Grinch fa­mously had a heart “two sizes too small,” whereas it seems Ford has one that runs at least two de­grees too cold.

Our pre­mier would prob­a­bly never dream of sell­ing off his own lake­front cot­tage prop­erty. But with vi­sions of casi­nos and con­dos danc­ing in his head, the “for-the-peo­ple” fraud­ster would grab and flip On­tario Place, and do it in record time.

Be­ware when a no-class act gets his hands on your prime land and tells you not to worry, some­thing world-class will get built.
