You Said It: Ford for leader was a mistake
THEY NEVER LEARN
The provincial election is a classic example of how political parties never learn.
The Progressive Conservatives made the biggest mistake in electing Doug Ford. Whether the PCs like it or not, he is carrying the weight of Rob Ford. They had the chance to elect a sure winner in Christine Elliott. There was never any doubt that Elliott is a Red Tory. For sure the PCs who are going over to the NDP are those on the left end of the PCs.
Kathleen Wynne did not realize that the time for the Liberals was coming to an end as long as she led party. She carries the weight of Dalton McGuinty. Surely the Liberals did internal surveys and recognized that Wynne is their greatest liability.
She has to wear the weight of the cancellation of the plants at a cost of $1.1 billion to save two seats. She must have known this at least a year ago. If the Liberals had elected a ne w leader, things might not be where the are. Politicians never know when their time is up until they are defeated.
This may turn out to be the lowest turnout for any provincial election in Ontario.
(Hopefully not â" change is badly needed.)
FORDâS YOUR ONLY CHOICE
The NDP are like the Liberals â" only worse. Are voters so naive that they canât see the writing on the wall? The Liberals are dead in the water so that means that voters have simply chosen a party who will do the same thing under a different banner.
Horwathâs intent to make Ontario a âsanctuary provinceâ should scare everyone. Justin Trudeau already opened the floodgates to illegals entering this country.
Are you prepared to have your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren saddled with a debt they will never be able to pay off? I used to think Canadians were smarter than that. Unfortunately I was proven w rong when Trudeau was elected.
Doug Ford might be scary to some, but heâs our only hope to get this province back on track.
WHEREâS MY COKE!?
I hate to be the one to burst this beer bubble Doug Ford seems to be living in but, I will.
Not all Ontarians are big beer drinkers and some, including me, donât drink beer at all. Secondly, Iâm kind of insulted Ford thinks beers more important than cola.
With few exceptions, hereâs the response I get when ordering a Coke in Ottawa. âIs Pepsi OK?â
If Ford wants to talk about beverage competition, Iâd like him to find out why I canât get a Coke.
Maybe my point is lost on beer drinkers so, Iâll put it this way.
Youâre in a pub with five other guys. All of you order a Budweiser. The server looks at the group and asks, âIs Pabst Blue Ribbon OKâ?
(Whatâ s wrong with PBR?)
