If you know me, you’ll know I’m fascinated by Canadian Politics. I’m not an expert on the history of each political party or their accomplishments when in power, but I am very interested in where each candidate for the upcoming Provincial Election wants to steer Ontario.

So expect a few posts between now and the election.

Full disclosure, I usually vote NDP or Liberal. I’ve been known to go Green as well.


In the interest of fair coverage, here’s Doug Ford on CBC Metro Morning today. In his 10 minute audio interview he covers…

• PCs are absolutely still ‘Progresive’ under him
• Against elitists (described as people who think they’re smarter and better who ‘drink their little bottles of champagne with their pinkies in the air’), whom he admits exist in all three major parties
• His concern for Ontario’s $300 billion debt
• Carbon Tax, he’s against it, says it puts Ontario at a disadvantage – but doesn’t say he’s a climate change denier
• Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum which he wants changed and so does every community he’s visited, says teachers and parents weren’t properly consulted

Host David Common pressed Mr. Ford for his solutions to the above or his platform, but, as Doug Ford says, it’s only been 48 hours.

However, it will be interesting to hear if he brings anything forward rather than just being against everything as his platform.
