This information has to get out so that Ontario voters get a better picture of what the PCs wish to accomplish. Otherwise, it's just speculation.

Doug Ford's Ontario Conservative platform to emerge piece by piece in slow reveal: source
Instead of a single, lengthy policy document, Ford will parse out promises individually in lead-up to June 7 election, says campaign official

As pressure builds on Doug Ford to detail his policy plans, the Ontario Progressive Conservative leader is instead opting for a slow reveal of his election platform.

The Tories have decided against unveiling a single, all-encompassing policy blueprint to replace the one put out by former leader Patrick Brown, according to a senior Ford adviser.

Instead, the party will release individual planks throughout the campaign for the June 7 election, culminating with an overview announcement of its policies, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

As first reported by the National Post, and as since confirmed by Ford, the Conservatives have ditched the lengthy, magazine-style manifesto Brown issued in November, and will instead put out a platform consisting of five key points.

“If you have 1,000 priorities, you have none,” said the source. “You have to focus. Our focus will be on the big picture and how to get the province back on track … We need to return Ontario to its rightful place as an economic leader in this country.”

Asked if the platform’s planks would start to be divulged this week, the campaign source said only that it would be “soon.”

Ford has come under increasing pressure to explain what he would do as premier, especially now that the governing Liberals have tabled a provincial budget that outlines a slew of new spending programs — and projected deficits for the next six years.

Makes sense he can be fully conversant on the issue he rolls out and thus better control the narrative .

Any money Ford gives to the Upper Middle Class is just gonna be spent off shore by Ontario citizens playing Tourist, and on Cruise Ships and Planes in other countries. A larger lineup during March Break at the Toronto Airport. The money will not be spent here in Ontario. They are not spending it here now, so why would they do so if Ford added to their wealth?

I think that the Rich Folks should be allowed to earn as much money as they can and they can stay home all day and count it too. In fact they should not even be allowed to step outside their house without wearing an ankle bracelet. They can have as much money as they can but should never be allowed to enjoy it.

Since there are non-informed voters (which is an oxymoron if anything) maybe by only concentrating on a few things will help them make an informed choice instead of the inee minee miney moe hold your nose vote. It may also help increase the chances of those who don't normally vote, to do so.


I watch with bated breath LOL

OK, it that's the case, why are there recounts in many constituencies then after every election? If someone wins with 80% of the vote, why on earth would the loser ask for a recount? Hello!!

The scandal that unseated the ELECTED LEADER brown was about money laundering of international dope money just like that which is going on now out in some other places around Canada, like BC casinos, and pretty much all our banks and real estate markets.

NONE of this is ever about politics, it's all about crime.

Thanks for the unknowing of the facts reddie there Walter.
