Ford Na­tion shed­ding tears in buck-a-beer


Re Are We Miss­ing Wynne Yet? (NOW, Novem­ber 22-28). I have ab­so­lutely no pity for those who re­gret vot­ing in the Ford Na­tion Tories. They bared their agenda pretty much on what they would do if elected, so ob­vi­ously vot­ers weren’t pay­ing much at­ten­tion.

Now that the PCs have gut­ted lo­cal democ­ra­cies, frozen the min­i­mum wage in­crease, alien­ated Franco-On­tar­i­ans and en­meshed them­selves in a num­ber of scan­dals in their first six months, vot­ers are shed­ding tears in their (buck-a-)beers on how good they had it be­fore?

As the late, great co­me­dian David Broad­foot once said: “No mat­ter what, peo­ple are go­ing to get what’s com­ing to them, es­pe­cially when it’s com­ing on a shovel.”
