Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP), not a Minister. But good.

I did not vote for Ford, but he has impressed me with how he's dealing with the pandemic here in Ontario. Not perfect in any way, but he's saying the right stuff and reacting wel when his caucus or Ministers fark up.

Except for his handling of LTC deaths, not preparing for kids to go back to school, and waiting until after Christmas to enact a tougher lockdown (and everybody went shopping and had Christmas together).

He was adequate in the first wave and then farked the rest of it up, they are still sitting on a lot of vaccines that they haven't figured out how to distribute (even though we all knew this was coming last September)

As I've said before Doug Ford is treating this like a business problem not a healthcare crisis.

So he's not as dumb as some of the R governors in the US.  Not that is a high bar to get over, but it's still something.

Well there is no love loss between me and Ford, I'm not sure what subby finds entertaining about quote hash dealer unquote like it's a big deal especially in a country or everybody who smoke for a long time and it's been legal for years.

I was a fan of how he shut up and let the smart people in the room talk back in the spring but he's wasted any trust he earned. Waiting until after the end of the school year to announce that kids wouldn't be returning farked up kids and teachers alike (a common theme of his in the beforetimes) and not locking down until the day after Christmas was just stupid and pointless and resulted in real deaths.

Albertan here - Our right wing government has a similar track record - some good, some bad. It's a hard situation to deal with, and at the very least they haven't pretended it doesn't exist.

I think that there is a big difference between being an elected member and the head of the executive. As the head of the executive, you have to make stuff work. This requires a leader to shed some of the dogmatism that rank and file members, and certainly the opposition, can exude in spades.

Ford is lucky Kenney and Legault exist, and on some days Pallitser.  Because the bar is so low to cross for con politicians regarding this pandemic, it's not at all surprising that Ford is the best of the worst.

Let us be clear - if there weren't more disastrous examples of leadership existing, you'd be saying that he was farking up the job. The simple fact that he's not the absolute bottom of the barrel is giving you hope.

By the way, Bonnie Henry is a treasure.

You do not anger The Doug.

The Doug may only anger you!

That said... he started out strong then shat the bed for the sake of his pre COVID mantra "OPEN FOR BUSINESS".

Although I did not like the idea of him being haiied as a hero and voted into another majority at least he was taking sh*t serious and acted pretty quickly and effectively without a bunch of his usual bully boy bluster and obstinance.

also...

penis

Then the second wave, long predicted, was essentially just allowed to run rampant on his watch so although it's a catastrophe the silver lining is he goan get the hoof at the end of his term..

Doug Ford has been out of his depth from the beginning of his term.  The only good thing he's done concerning the pandemic is to recognize that fact and step aside to let the experts tell him what to do.  Unfortunately, Dr. Williams is weaksauce, and hasn't done a good job in being proactive instead of reactive.

Let us never forget:
Toronto city council cutting debacle
Healthcare cuts, education cuts
Electric car subsidy cuts
Gas pump stickers debacle
Invisible blue license plates debacle
Crony police chief pick debacle

On and on.  He's not qualified for the job, he was never qualified for the job.

Zactly...

Once this is contained it will be right back to Mike Harris on meth, steroids AND crack!

He wants to finish daddy's job and make sure he didn't fall on his sword for no reason back in the almagamation days (his dad allowed Mikey to completely erase his district and thus elected status for the sake of stiginnit it to the downtown core).

Garbage human.

Oh... and apparently he used to short people on bricks of hash.

Just a few grams here and there but yanno... it adds up.

When you're such a monumental dick that even Doug Ford thinks you're going too far you should take it as a sign that some serious introspection is needed.
 
2021-01-15 11:00:02 PM  
I heard an interview with a Toronto emergency room physician tonight.  They are in stage one triage.  Basically, if the opinion of two doctors is that you have less than a 20% chance of surviving for a year you are put on palliative care instead of being given a ICU bed.  Stage three is less than a 70% chance.  Anyone promoting the idea that the risk is overblown is obviously not paying attention.  ICU beds are needed for more than just Covid.

More to the point the sudden concern for mental health by many right wing politicians strikes me as disingenuous and really pisses me off.  Champions of mental health when it suits their agenda but no one believes for a moment they actually care in the long term about mental health issues.  Farking vultures.

My BIL harvested four plants in the fall, and gifted me about an ounce of his finest grow for Christmas. He gave me about 5 grams of sweet homemade hash too.

I remember before the Taliban became the enemy and the streets were paved with Afghani Gold.

I was raised on oil though. Actual weed was rare in the olden days.

Too hard to hide and teh reefers was FAR more illegal.

lilbjorn: Ford will be Canada's Trump.  Mock my words.


He will never make it to the federal level, for two reasons:

1) Quebec, BC and vast parts of Ontario will never elect him, without those provinces he's done.
2) he doesn't speak French, not a requirement, but it instantly cedes Quebec and other French speaking areas to the PQ and/or Liberals, making the pathway to governing very difficult.

When I first read his letter yesterday, I thought "oh, those seem like decent points". And then I compared his numbers to the real numbers. They are wrong, all wrong.

I wonder if that somehow factored into his thoughts when he decided to bring the policehammer down on all the unlicensed cannabis shops.

It was a drag, because they carried a different variety of products that weren't available in the OCS, and their flower tended to be less dried out than in the official stores.

Mail order is awesome for pricing, but there was something great about the experience of the unlicensed shots. (And they tended to use zipper bags which are way less packaging than the plastic jars at the OCS)

What were we talking about again?  Oh yeah, Doug ford.

Also announcing programs that apparently those who administer them weren't consulted about, or details weren't even half-ass worked out beforehand:

Pandemic pay (the extra $2 (?) to be added on to hourly wages for healthcare workers)

CERB and the business relief subsidies (friend is a bookkeeper and said it was a shiatshow from the start - CRA didn't know how to administer, programs confusing, programs changed before the first round of applications were processed and then they didn't know how to deal with applications for the revised program, etc)

CEAP (hydro relief assistance for residential and small businesses) - first round was so restrictive that barely anyone qualified; announced an increase in relief available as of Jan 2021, contact your local distributor with questions, but the local distributors have zero details and no idea what the parameters of the newer program are

Announcing an increase in Covid-related enforcement, with powers given to police. Now police are saying they can't/won't enforce (ex. they won't pull over vehicles to find out if the passengers are out on a legitimate outing). Police say they weren't consulted prior to the announcement.

I'm sure there's lots more, but those are a few that come to mind.
