Randall Denley: Before Doug Ford cuts, he should ask himself, ‘Will this sound stupid?’

Everyone who thinks Ontario needs to spend less money on flood control, plant fewer trees or get rid of its inter-library loan program, please raise your hands? Right, there’s the problem. None of these ideas make intuitive sense and the government has done a poor job of explaining why the cuts are being made.

If a government is going to risk being accused of hating libraries and the environment, the savings need to be commensurate to the political heat.  That’s not the case with any of these moves, which are the budgetary equivalent of looking in your other pants for spare change.

Sometimes you read an article that articulates an incomplete thought in your mind and finishes it.  Why does it come out during a flood that they want to cut back flood control ?  I suspect this is about ninnyism but then again the article asks "why feed it ?"  They have poor political sense.
