I can only think of one reason why @fordnation wants to be Premier - to give tax breaks to his rich friends. 😢😡 #cdnpoli #onpoli #OntarioVotes #VoteFordOut2022

Donna Skelly was at my door and asked why I won’t vote for her and the PCs. I kept it brief & said LTC. She blamed it on the previous govt. Me: Then why didn’t you do better. You had 4yrs. but made it worse.

Cruz wouldn’t last 10 seconds in the UK. The problem is right wing ownership controls almost every media outlet in North America, so our politicians are aloud to get away with underhanded crap. We need more interviews like this in Canada too! CBC and Sean O’shea isn’t enough.
American reporters, take note. This is how it’s done.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau rolling up his sleeves today, and pouring @TimHortons coffee while visiting a community service centre to meet with the families affected by the horrific storm in Nepean, Ontario is leadership! Premier Doug Ford should take a page from Justin's book!

Replying to @HamiltonPolice
The Premier invited the entire province to come. Trespassing is out the window as a rationale. How was the protester protesting? Throwing gravel? Bouncy castle? Honking horns? Setting up a hot tub? The province is dying to know what @CarymaRules was doing just prior to arrest.

Remember when we found out LTC residents were dying in their beds from dehydration, and Doug Ford introduced legislation to protect LTC owner-operators from lawsuits. This is his priority; protecting and lining the pockets of PC donors. #VoteFordOutJune2 #VoteFordOut2022

Wow the more that is known the more evident ot is Ford is not fit for office
On a US trade mission to Washington DC in Feb 2020, Ford surreptitiously blew town for Dallas, Texas for a meeting with 7-Eleven’s US CEO to discuss in-store bar service in "designated alcohol consumption areas" in the convenience chain's 61 Ontario locations. "I encourage../2

Rumor has it that Sean O'Shea of Global News has been reassigned away from covering Premier Ford after Sean asked Doug a couple of tough but fair questions. Ford does not support a free press. He will cut off access to journalists not found to be sufficiently fawning.

We moved to Kingston Ontario in the middle of the pandemic, from Montreal, so we did not vote for Doug Ford in 2018. I love the people here, but I have problems wrapping my head around anyone who who believes that Doug Ford is good for the people and the future of Ontario.

As a Canadian & a grandfather, I worry about the direction the Conservatives want to take Canada. Especially the Pierre Poilievre Conservatives. After watching a Trump America for 4 years, I'm shocked that 35% of the country would vote for Poilievre. Sad.

Justin Gordon should be charged by the RCMP. under canadian criminak code 264.1 . up to 5 years. @CommrRCMPGRC we need to start properly charging these ppl. continually letting criminals go free makes it very hard as a canadian to feel safe. do your job. Pls. Charge him
@theJagmeetSingh Mr Singh why have you remained silent over the incident in BC which forced the RCMP to cancel a PM Trudeau appearance. What is the difference between this and what happened to you in Peterborough, for which PM expressed abhorrence?

Ford’s office withheld the Premier’s itinerary from the media until a freedom of information request for data on his first 3 months in office showed Ford had had numerous undisclosed meetings with Galen Weston Jr. of Loblaw Companies Ltd. over minimum wages and with retired../2

A noose is a common symbol among this group, groups like them and their followers. It needs to be seen as the threat of violence that it is. No matter how much they claim to be about “love.” 3 images from Grande Prairie:

To all my Canadian friends, if what happens in the USA constantly scares and upsets you, I would highly suggest looking into the conservative party platform and noticing many similarities to the USA structure. If you want Canada to remain a safe place for all don’t vote Cons
