You mean like Rent Control, Pensions, middle class income, ...

I didn't say it's impossible.  People were upset about pensions.  Veterans are upset that the Trudeau gov changed their benefits around and reduced payments.  Middle class income isn't regulated by the gov, unless they ban manufacturing job exports etc.

The Star cites service industry employment rate increase...

I think we'll know more about the minimum wage effects after the end of the year so we can compare this year to previous years.  It might even take a few years to see the effects.  I'm interested to see.

One of the things I fear the effects of making it more expensive for small businesses to start up and also operate.  It will make it even harder for them to compete with big corporations who can absorb the wage costs easier, and then big corps will have even more of a stranglehold on the economy.

I dunno. 

The service industry seems to be changing quite a bit.  I am paying $6 for a coffee and somebody is making that money.  Those barristas are too happy to be making $12/hr.

Patrick Brown says he was the subject of a takedown, also says there are sexual misconduct allegations against Vic Fidelli ?

When is this storyline going to end ?

This crisis has brought out the best in Doug Ford, I must say.


https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-ontario-to-raise-pay-of-front-line-coronavirus-workers-by-4-an-hour/

He has dropped the near-conspiracy, populist right-wing nonsense....   Heís led Ontario through this in a very pragmatic, science-backed way.  Not what I would have expected.

Now a pay raise for front line workers.

And calling right-wing protesters  reckless and a bunch of yahoos. 

Hopefully he realizes his cuts prior to this hasnít helped.

Yeah he won a lot of respect for saying that.

Scheer couldn't tell them to get lost, but Doug Ford told the yahoos to get stuffed.

Unfortunately cuts are necessary.  The previous governments 15 years of reckless and irresponsible fiscal policy have made Ontario the most indebted non-country in the entire world.  Ontario spends tens of billions of dollars each year on just paying interest on its debt thanks to the previous Liberal governments. 
Anti-herd is the new anti-vaxx.  Sweden did it right.

Same old Doug Ford it seems...  still as stupid as ever.   He manages to parrot health officials and advise people correctly, but too dumb to do so on a personal level.

Premier Doug Ford appears to have broken COVID-19 physical distancing measures prescribed by Ontario's public health officials, saying his two daughters who live in different households visited his home over Mother's Day weekend.

Speaking to reporters at his daily briefing Monday, Ford said his family gathering was limited to six people, "direct family" only, with none of his daughters' husbands or boyfriends present.

Doug got together with fam this weekend, Trudeau got together with fam on Easter.  I guess it's do as I say, not as I do for our politicians.  Bunch of entitled dolts.  Real leadership guys.
