ONTARIO AGONISTES

PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE DOUG FORD WAS ELECTED PREMIER OF ONTARIO ON JUNE 7. The good news is voter turnout jumped seven points to 58.4%. The sad news is the first-past-the-post voting system again distorted the distribution of seats. Thus the PCs will govern with a majority of seats in the provincial legislature, even though they did not get a majority of votes province-wide.

 

TRADING INSULTS

THE DONALD TRUMP TRAVELLING S**T SHOW HAS FINALLY MADE IT TO CANADA. After leaving the G7 Summit in Quebec the U.S. President called the Canadian Prime Minister “weak and very dishonest”. Then he doubled-down the next day by telling Canadians that we would pay a high price for his perceived snub.
