Ford failures not lost amid slick ads
Re: Front page advertisement “We are Moving Forward,” sponsored by Windsor Essex Economic Development Corporation, March 27
All endeavours by WEEDC, including this giant thank you to Premier Doug Ford, are paid for by tax dollars without any consultation from those who pay into the city coffers. The advertisement extols how the premier “has delivered on his promise to advance plans for the new hospital system.”
But long overdue, in my opinion, is also an announcement of Ford's broken promises:
■ Making schools safer by reducing class sizes and providing proper ventilation.
■ Protecting our seniors from COVID by hiring many more personal support workers.
■ Removing long-term care homes from the for-profit model.
■ Legislating more daycare spaces.
■ Not squandering millions of our tax dollars on ill-advised lawsuits against the federal government (carbon tax).
Sorry to burst anybody's bubble who maintains Ford is their hero, but despite his homey touch, I feel there is very little expertise and insight in the way that our province is governed.
This is also exemplified in the sloppy way vaccines have been rolled out to citizens seeking protection during this pandemic.
May we all survive despite any slick advertising.
