REGRESSIVE NOT PRO­GRES­SIVE

Toronto Sun - - COMMENT -

Re “Pro­gres­sive” (Let­ters to the Ed­i­tor, June 13): I had to laugh when I read this let­ter. Just be­cause the word “pro­gres­sive” is in the party’s name, does not make them so. Doug Ford’s platform (sorry, I mean his prom­ises, he had no platform) are the very def­i­ni­tion of regressive: Can­celling the min­i­mum wage hike, re­vert­ing to sex ed­u­ca­tion that doesn’t ac­knowl­edge the ex­is­tence of the In­ter­net or cell­phones, and do­ing noth­ing about cli­mate change. The 40% who voted to bring Ontario boldly back into the 20th cen­tury have ev­ery right to cel­e­brate ,but please don’t kid your­self that you were be­ing pro­gres­sive.
