What do you think of Ford hiring the family lawyer to a $600,000 /yr position??

Sounds ridiculous.  I've never heard of a lawyer making that much in Canada unless they own their own firm.  Canada should have confirmation hearings like in the US for appointments to avoid these things, or have patronage regulations.

I would say Canada should have a better appointment process, but I wouldn't go so far as to replicate the circus we have in the US. I think the step Trudeau made with Senator appointments is in the right direction, not exactly how I had suggested several times in the past but far better than the old status quo.

All examples of blaming Harris for what Harris did.

All examples of you defending Wynne and McGuinty and what they had done to Ontario's electricity system and blaming it all on a guy out of power for over a decade.

Now, are you going to accept that Ford filled up the swamp or are you going to continue to deflect?

I don't feel any need to do either. Not enough information has been presented and unlike you people on the Left I'm not reflexively anti P.C.

Yeah, appointing loyal liberals instead of loyal Liberals. Big improvement.

As I said, it was not the appointment process that I suggested many times in the past. It is however a bizillion light years ahead of the one used by Harper.

All examples of blaming Harris for selling out Ontario public resources to the private sector. That was his baby, 100% his baby. I was not afraid of blaming Wynne and McGuinty for what they did, or failed to do.

You however are blaming Wynne for something that is 100% on Ford. You need to get new glasses.

Because now, instead of appointing people who will loyally follow the Conservative party agenda, we appoint people who will loyally follow a liberal agenda! Whoopee!

I did not blame Wynne for a single thing on this topic. You need to get more RAM

Ontario made the right call in voting out Liberals, interim leader says

Quote
“The truth is last June voters told us in pretty unequivocal terms, they’d had enough of us. That after 15 years, they wanted change,” Fraser said.

“They put us in the penalty box. Time will tell for how long. And, frankly, they made the right call.”

He said the party lost its message during the campaign, and in turn, lost the election. To regain it, he said he’d look to the party grassroots — and particularly the Ontario Young Liberals — for guidance.

Well that is that.
