So? You think they'd have had a chance of getting any kind of press coverage like Trudeau gets?

The large majority of newspapers in Canada lean conservative.  National Post, Sun papers, Ottawa Citizens and all Postmedia papers.  Talk radio tends to lean conservative.  You have to fight the Toronto Star and CBC, ok.

Plus Ontario Proud and Rebel Media lying all over the web... there's no liberal equivalent to that propaganda machine, nor do conservatives do anything to stop the lies...

The postmedia papers carry the same basic columnists.The Sun, Citizen and Post, for example, will all cover the same stories exactly the same way and usually with the same columnist. There are a few somewhat conservative columnists who will complain about the deficit or weak laws or government waste, but the papers themselves are not conservative. In terms of social issues they're all reliably on the progressive side of the divide. There is not one media organization in this country that isn't strongly in favour of gender equality, pro gay-rights, pro-life, anti-death penalty, pro union, pro-immigration, diversity and multiculturalism. When you run the check list of social causes most beloved to progressives, the media line up on the progressive side in every single case.

And it is on social causes that the Conservatives are usually attacked, often unfairly. It's already happening to Bernier, with the CBC doing a hit job on him the other day.

What do you want conservatives to do? Take Ezra out to the woodshed?
By the way, have you ever tried to reconcile in your mind why a Jew would be a Nazi?

I want them to denounce.  They're good at that.  I don't get why he hires Nazis.  They make fun of working for him on his own site.

I am anti Trudeau and was anti Wynne. However I think Ford's whining about the free trade deal barely hours after it was signed was cheap below the belt crap.

The decisions that went into the agreement were done trying to consider the unions, business owners and provinces and it is unfair to say Ontario was sold out. In fact car parts manufacturers are better off and the unions and business owners traditionally at opposite ends of the spectrum both have said they can live with the deal.

Ford was out of line not taking time to prepare a proper balanced criticism.. if he had any decency he would have pointed out the positives not just negatives.

Ford can be an ugly, shallow, bully. He can't resist knee jerk cheap shots at a time when we need dignity in politics not slovenly hateful divisiveness.

I will challenge Trudeau but taking cheap shots at him a day after the deal is too easy.

I prefer William Davis like middle of the roaders. I liked David Crombie. I liked Paul Martin.

I don't always agree with John Tory but he brought dignity back to the Mayor's job with his manners.
 
I don't like rude people who look like they devour whales whole without chewing them. I dislike Ford as a person. His party I hope can addresss the serious financial mess.

Ford needs to learn when to lay back. The federal government is going to compensate dairy farmers due to the new agreement. How about then he shut his fat mouth until he finds out the size of that compensation.

I disagree with what Tory, Crombie and the like represent but you are right - they are dignified and they behave as professionals.

Ford is a yokel.  For that matter, the USMCA seems to have sold out Quebec to save Ontario auto jobs so what is he saying ?

I was going to ask for a link but never mind... I don't care about him....

Get beyond the ideology, and look at the evidence, and you'll find no sign that the workplace reforms and minimum wage increase caused widespread job loss or economic damage.

The changes did put more money in workers' pockets and less in employers' pockets, and that simple fact raises questions about the real reasons why the Ford government is making this move.

No evidence that anything Doug Ford says is true.  That about sums up his first few months in office...

On Wednesday, the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission says it found the deal, which valued Avista at $6.7 billion, to not be in the public interest after it became clear that the Ontario government was willing to interfere in the utility.

Looks like Ford is hiring his friends and denied the cronyism.
