The conservative failson never should have become premier. He certainly shouldn't have won a second election. A new slate of scandals and failures ought to be the final straw, at last.
As I read, in my head I'm just adding to the long list---buck-a-beer; doubling the autism waitlist; eliminating outside inspections of care homes; no longer enforcing credentials in skilled trades; etc., ad nauseum. But this is parliamentary democracy, and we're stuck with him.
Seem to recall he also wasted hundreds of thousands fighting the carbon tax and tearing down windmills. Not to mention the trashing of environmental protections . . .
Let's not forgot that his government also created conditions to worsen healthcare crisis, specifically the access to primary care by reducing the amount that the province funds for virtual care clinics from $39 to $14. Glad to give back my licence plate refund (which I didn't ask for - did anyone) to have actual access to (approximate) universal health care.
Any self-respecting person would have quit, yes. But Dougie doesn't need self-respect. He's got money, power and a deeply flawed electoral system that allows him to function like an autocrat within a supposed democracy.
Back in the Jan/Feb period before the pandemic was called in March, a friend of mine txt me. He was furious. His neighbor owns a company that does business intel for pharma. Trolls scientists and medical blogs looking for upcoming trends and sells this info. He spotted COVID. Freaked out docs from different countries had been discussing what they had saw starting in December. He went to Ford in Feb and said you have to cancel spring break and warn people otherwise they will bring what ever this is back. Ford said “that won’t make me popular “. That’s exact quote my friend sent me. Ford did the exact opposite, he encouraged people to go. Remember? He was warned about this. He is a soulless fucking ghoul.
Who would replace him? This is a serious question.
Is this a parody?
