Sure DoFo is rough around the edges but he can't be this bad in government.

When he was in government, he had the worst attendance record and drove up the debt. Yes, DoFo is rough around the edges and incompetent to boot.

He was a councillor and it's illegal for a municipality to run a deficit.

I think you need to reeducate yourself, check out the City of Toronto Act Regulation 610/06. It spells out in detail what debt the city can undertake, both long term and short term. In a nutshell, short term borrowing can be used for operating expenses (50% of estimated revenues for the year up to September 30, and 25% for the remainder of the year) but are expected to be paid when tax is collected. Short term borrowing can be used for interim financing of capital work, and long term debt can also be used for capital work by: issuing debentures; issuing revenue bonds; or entering bank loan agreements.  (Reg. 265/07, s. 1).

Under the Ford regime, long term debt grew by $1.2 billion.

What's the deficit grown by under Wynne?
We don't even know because her crooked government cooks the books.

Well this Provincial government has doubled the provinces debt and actually sold off assets to pay for capital expenditures.

You mean Bruce nuclear and 407ETR? Oh wait, that was the Progressive Conservatives.

From the outside it seems like dissatisfaction with Wynne is so profound that even if they had selected an adulterous senile orangutan, the PCs would be sure to win.

I glanced at the headlines yesterday and saw that Doug Ford promises to create jobs by "cutting red tape", which seems to me like the ultimate dumb-guy answer to every single question in politics.

"Mr Ford! If you become Premier, how do you plan to deal with the issue of blah-blah?"

"You know, the reason we can't blah-blah is because of all the red tape! The real problem is red tape!   When I'm Premier, I'll cut the red tape so that we can blah-blah!"

I didn't read the article, but the "cutting red tape" meme certainly reinforced my view of Ford and his boosters.

As opposed to "We need to help everyone in the province by being in perpetual deficit". DoFo isn't my choice, but people can't let this party lie to us again.

Always better to have a different party lie to you.

The on thing DoFo has is the dupes who follow his cut taxes line that has 100% of the time lead to much higher deficits. We need fiscally responsible government, not fiscally incompetent.

The party in power has doubled the debt in 15 years and pledges to ad to it. I don't know how anyone can do much worse.

I completely understand that the prevailing mood in Ontario is dissatisfaction with Wynne and her government.

It just pains me that the beneficiary of this mood is a clown like Doug Ford.

Wynne is very desperate.  She's spent the last year trying to buy votes by throwing goodies at people they'll just have to pay for in the coming decades...which interest.  She's bribing people with their own money.

Scary thing is, a lot of Ontarians are this stupid. Look at the personal debt people in Ontario have.  People are stupid, naive, greedy, and entitled, want things now, get into credit card debt & think they can just pay for it later.

I'd vote for a bucket of **** before I'd reward Wynne's gov with a vote.  That bucket of ****'s name is Doug Ford.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
