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.”
