Doug Ford ends northern Ontario tour without any northern promises

Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford wrapped up his three-day campaign-style tour of northern Ontario Wednesday night without making any new campaign promises specifically for the north.

Ford's trip ended with an evening rally in Sudbury, after stops earlier this week in Thunder Bay, Sioux Lookout, Dryden and Kenora.

"It's great to be in the north, as I say, with the real folks of Ontario," Ford told the crowd of about 200 people at Cambrian College. The attendance matched the crowd Ford drew Tuesday night in Thunder Bay.

Ford said the Sudbury rally was the reason he could not attend a leaders' debate in Toronto Wednesday evening organized by the black community, and attended by Premier Kathleen Wynne, NDP leader Andrea Horwath and Green Party leader Mike Schreiner.

At the rally, Ford spoke for about 20 minutes, shook hands and chatted with those in attendance for about 15 minutes, did a three-minute scrum with reporters, then was whisked off to the airport by his staff at 7:30.

Meanwhile, the Wynned Bag has promised the people of Northern Ontario that they'll get stuck helping to pay for a high speed white elephant corridor between TO and Windsor. Those lucky folks.

Etobicoke isn't in the "North". Charity begins at home, eh?

Isn't it better to promise nothing and deliver on something needed than to promise something, needed or not, and deliver on nothing?

It's better to partially deliver than not to deliver at all.

Right now Dog is showing he hasn't the capacity to deliver on anything.

Doug Ford said that he was unable to participate in last nights debate because of a major visit to Northern Ontario, and then we find out that he arrived at the campaign stop, shook a few hands and left.

I'm surprised the Wynne Cartel hasn't tried to muscle their way into the Mohawk tobacco syndicate.

Just divide the Province already. Make Subury the Capital of Western Ontario which it actually is.

So, one million will live in one half and the other thirteen million will live in the other half. I can see why you think that "the East" is the other half of Canada opposite Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Wynne and Ford should have a debate in front of the jail that's holding all her insiders.

Two completely different worlds. A million or not the only connection to Canada's penis is Queen's Park.

Better to under promise and over deliver.
