1. I am not calling Ford left.  He's been pretty moderate and mostly reasonable.

2. Ford and Trudeau are not on the same team.  The convoy was set up because the feds were taking away people's jobs if they didn't want to get vaccinated.  Ford did not require teachers or students to be vaccinated, for instance.  The ON Liberals promised to make student vaccinations mandatory even though the health threat to students from covid is next to zero.

3. The ON Liberals tried to use mandatory vaccines as a wedge issue in order to try to get elected.  The fed Liberals did the execrable same thing. They announced mandatory vaccines for all public servants even if they work from home during their last election campaign.  They just lifted the mandate btw.  So you were forced to get vaxxed by the gov even if you never went into the office once.  Disgusting abuse of power.

1. Ford IS 'bludgeon of the state' in Ontario
2. The protesters wanted to drop provincial mandates as well, not just the US-Canada trucking mandates.  Hard to tell because their slogan was "F*** Trudeau'
3. I don't see any major differences - provinces and feds were stumbling along.  But F*** Trudeau...
