Yesterday I received an email with an attached copy of a list of Premier Doug Ford's achievements so far and what else he is planning to do next. Kathryn Kaiser is a resident of Ontario and operates an art studio near Orillia.

Perhaps anyone of you is a Ford supporter and would like to comment. I am interested to hear from you why you think he is so great.

According to his own resume, he has only a grade 10 education.

Cut civil servants jobs instead of teachers'!! Why does he not be a good example and donate his own salary, like trump supposedly does? But no, always hit the little people first... health care, education, the disabled, university students, daycare, the homeless etc. He caters to the lower IQ ranks, like gamblers, hunters and tailgate party drinkers. And of course his own friends!!!
Why do we need new license plates? And why hit the gas stations with such heavy fines, if they don't openly oppose the carbon tax? That is outright extortion and totally illegal.

I see, we are sliding more and more into a dictatorship.

Let's see where Ontario is in 3 years when the Ford Revolution is in full swing.

Will he have managed to take over the Toronto subway planing and started the engineering studies on his $30 billion fantasy.

As a native Ontarian I can tell you that the Conservatives taking over the TTC is a nightmare scenario. They have managed over the years to rain destruction on the TTC from afar. Imagine if they were actually in charge?

GOSH HOID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


Have you been into the legal WEED SUPPLY RECENTLY?????????????????????????????????


Your posts are getting DUMBED DOWN faster than LIE-beral political logic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!








LIE-beral hypocrites working as college professors justify their claimed right to censor any speaker they do not approve of as a “value judgement” intended to improve education- by which they mena stuffing THEIR VIEWS down th throats of others like good little Nazis!

LIE-berals scorn the Doug Ford transit plan to simply re-start the two decade old Shepard subway plan! But what has changed? Population density is higher than ever along the planned route so how is the plan suddenly invalid? Unless you are simply a Ford HATER slapping at anything he says?

LIE-berals asks us “who wants to live in a Doug Ford Ontari-owe”? WE ALL DO! The only no votes are from LIE-berals and their Hog allies!

Ontari-owe LIE-berals- the most hated govt in Cdn history think they can scare us by suggesting “we don’t know the real Doug Ford”! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

A chief LIE-beral strategist called Doug Ford a “dick” - while ignoring the widespread public view that LIE-berals are ALL thieves!

LIE-berals insist that Ford is a racist and opposed to a multi cultural Ontari-owe. But LIE-berals ignore the majority of Cdns who want to see illegals deported, and want to see immigration standards raised and want to see LIE-beral politicians forbidden from giving more grants to Black Lives Matter Bigots!

LIE-berals think it is more useful to teach 9 year old kids about anal sex than multiplication tables and spelling.

LIE-berals would rather damage our education system and reduce academic standards across the board and blight the future of our kids than admit how many ethnic kids are failing in our school system thansk to our messed up LIE-beral immigration policies!

LIE-berals would rather blame “racists” for blighted black lives than admit it is crap attitudes that are mostly to blame!

LIE-berals think it is police harassment for cops to arrest large numbers of black criminals- real proof and evidence is irrelevant to LIE-berals!

Wynne-bag LIE-berals suggest that Ford will lay off 40,000 civil service union Hogs if he becomes premier. Are there really 40,000 public relations spin doctors and parasites in LIE-beral govt?

LIE-berals are angry that Ford thinks that parents should be informed if their 15 year old daughter needs an abortion! A 15 year old girl is NOT an adult!

LIE-berals say a Ford govt will have to make service cuts. Oh? Worse cuts than those LIE-berals have made by shutting rural hospitals and rationing health care?

LIE-berals say poor people cannot afford Conservative policies. Too bad NONE of us can afford LIE-beral policies- as soaring Cdn debt levels prove!

LIE-berals warn that Ford will give corporations huge tax cuts- will this interfere with the flow of gravy to LIE-berals listed in the Paradise Papers tax scandal?

LIE-berals whine about Ford not wanting to expand rent controls- LIE-berals would rather just destroy the rental market using the Soviet style “command economy” model where bribery and political connections make or break your housing options!

LIE-berals whine that Ford will not give minimum wage increases and how will LIE-berals justify their disgraceful salary increases for Hogs if there is no minimum wage ponzi scheme in effect to PRETEND people are getting more money? With LIE-berals its all in one pocket and back out the other- with ONLY civil service Hogs actually KEEPING the raises!

LIE-berals pretend that the minimum wage increase benefits poor people even as LIE-berals dismantle the raise with higher income tax, increased Cdn pension plan deductions, higher Unemployment deductions, increased hydro costs, soaring food prices as carbon crap and trade scam kicks in, soaring property taxes and all manner of increased fees just so LIE-berals will have the gravy they need to buy Hog votes and cling to power at any price!

Ford see nothing wrong with selling Cannabis in corner stores- how will LIE-berals get to buy votes by creating more jobs for civil service union Hogs in newly created govt weed stores if non union people get to sell it?

LIE-berals say Ford will give corporations big tax cuts- will these ALLEGED cuts cost more than the proven LIE-beral MARs deal, E-health, the endless waste and entitlements at Metrolinx, the rot at MTHC, the LIE-beral pedestrian bridge built upside down, the snow plowing scandal, the road paving scandal, the Nippising bridge failure, the failure of prefab steel girders LIE-berals bought for 401 bridges, the accounting lies that auditor general Bonnie Lysyk has documented, the fifty percent raises demanded by senior college and university staffers, the green energy mess that only cleans wallets of cash and leaves the dirt in the air?

LIE-berals suggest that Ford will not make business take responsibility for pollution but we already have solid proof that the LIE-beral carbon crap and trade plan is nothing but a costly scam- designed in imitation of the scandal riddled European model- to enrich civil service union Hogs so how can Ford possibly make that costly LIE-beral mess any worse?

LIE-berals whine that Ford will not support their failed carbon crap and trade mess simply because it is INEFFECTIVE! LIE-berals do not want to admit that cutting back on gravy to Sunshine List Hogs so the people in Ontari-owe who already have the largest carbon foot print will be forced to cut back IS a more effective climate control method!

LIE-berals whine about lost jobs under Ford- but crippling debt is the real job killer! One has only to look at the disaster of the PIGS- Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain to se the ugly job killing reality of debt!

LIE-berals whine that tax breaks to corporations do not create jobs- if that is true then why does LIE-beral policy offer all manner of tax breaks and grants to any business to come here and set up shop?

Thanks, Everyone, for your comments. Now at least I can understand why Doug Ford got so overwhelmingly voted in.
It will be interesting to see the mood and the mess in the province at the end of his reign. By then the younger voters will have a say as well.

Your teachers have BETRAYED YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Winston Churchill said it best:



At age 16 a young person of conscience will be a Communist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!



At age 26 the young person of common sense and life experience will be a capitalist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Do not count on the young to dispose of Ford for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Consider the new wealth taxes that our civil service union HOGS want to put on the Baby Boomers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The last best hope of the young for getting some gravy of their own is to INHERIT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


They certainly AINT GETTING GRAVY from corporations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


Corporations take their jobs and LEAVE town if taxes get to high!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But YOU CAN trust your parents to help you were they can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


IF the parents can get the civil service union HOGS from robbing us all blind in their quest for MORE GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


All it takes is a few years in the job market and housing market for FORMER students go recognize WHO is getting the GOOD GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And who is PAYING for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And THAT is something that LIE-beral Fake News CANNOT HIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
