Doug Ford to lead Ontario Conservatives — Why that's important, no matter where you live

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

In seven weeks, the PC Party of Ontario has been transformed:

From supporting a carbon tax to railing against it. From supporting wind turbines to threatening to rip them out of the ground. From bending the knee and submitting to the mainstream media’s idea of what an acceptable conservative is — to bashing the media and ignoring them, Trump-style.

From Patrick Brown to Doug Ford.

I can’t believe it. And I’m so hopeful, for a bunch of reasons that I’ll tell you

It was a hectic leadership contest. Patrick Brown was the leader just seven weeks ago — and then a CTV attack on his alleged sexual misconduct — some allegations of which have been recanted; and Brown says he’s going to sue them — Brown was leader less than two months ago, with a boring, soft-left, Red Tory platform, including a carbon tax.

What’s the point in having a Conservative Party that is indistinguishable from the Liberal Party on all core ideas?

Sure, Kathleen Wynne is corrupt and has ruined the economy. But that was true before. Running another focus-grouped, artificial candidate against her, and her Big Labour war machine, doesn’t work.

Well, that’s gone now. And I think Doug Ford's got a real chance to be premier, too.

The media is hostile — of course, but I don’t think that works as well as it used to.

So are other groups. I'll show you an outrageous attack ad, published by... the Canadian Civil Liberties Association! An allegedly non-partisan charity, and they're campaigning against Ford.

But that’s a good sign — the degree with which Ford’s enemies hate him shows the degree to which they think he is a real force for change.

NEXT: Our own David Menzies comes on to talk about being barred from covering the leadership election on Saturday — and who was behind that decision!

THEN: Toronto Sun columnist Anthony Furey and I look to the future: Does Doug Ford really have a chance of beating Wynne in the upcoming election?

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Flat Earth,

I am sure she doesn’t want to see your old shrivelled up balls hanging on the floor either.

You care more about Justin than I do.
commented 2018-03-14 04:19:51 -0400
I don’t want to see Rosie O’Donnell naked either.!!

Bob Rock speaking of Clown shows , how is Justin today?
commented 2018-03-14 01:11:39 -0400
Bob Rock at least tell me you did not get get upset that Rob Ford used some letterhead for his charity football that helped poor kids? That was pretty low for the media to act like that was some crime.
commented 2018-03-14 01:08:27 -0400
Bob Rock the clown show was the medias doing.

Peter Netterville,

Apparently you don’t understand the difference between upset and mocking/sarcasm.

I already experienced the clown show of Ford Nation in Toronto. I expect more of the same if he does beat Wynne, which will only ensure that Doug Ford becomes a punchline.

Ferris wheels and neon signs – here we come.

Pooooor Bobby Rock. Let me buy you a soother to replace the one you lost.
commented 2018-03-13 22:00:49 -0400
Robert, he certainly is unraveling and his public impairment is another embarrassment. Trudeau will have a maelstrom to deal with when scandals involving the LPC going back decades will finally be exposed. He wont’ come out of it unscathed.

His treatment of the King and Queen of Belgium is confirmation he has no understanding about etiquette and decorum.
commented 2018-03-13 20:35:03 -0400
Yes, the walls are closing in on me.

You retards really make me laugh.
commented 2018-03-13 20:34:03 -0400
Yes, all you NOW moderates (because Doug Ford is one) are very supportive of gay people and gay rights.



Apparently you don’t realize that Doug Ford will represent gay people as well.
commented 2018-03-13 20:30:02 -0400
Bob Rock is unraveling just like Trudeau, rapidly and rabidly. Poor thing. Predictions failed, world collapsing around them, pedophilia has returned to being immoral and wrong and not the type of things kindergarten and young children should be learning about when they could be focused on playing in the playground… Poor Bob and Justin, how will they cope.
commented 2018-03-13 20:11:45 -0400
Liza and Tammie, Trudeau is looking more and more vulnerable. He is getting drunk and/or high in public and he is losing it in caucus meetings. Things have not gone well for him in the last few weeks and now he has snubbed the King and Queen of Belgium. I think he’s thin skinned and it’s all starting to come apart.
commented 2018-03-13 18:24:19 -0400
Bob Rock maybe ask some gay people and couples how they feel about pushing this on others, many are against it and want to protect kids from perverts. You do not speak for them , nor do your virtue signalling left wing peers.
commented 2018-03-13 18:15:31 -0400
Bob Rock why should anyone see it? I do not want to see Rosie O Donnel naked either , does not mean i hate women.
commented 2018-03-13 17:01:53 -0400
Bob… I suggest you go find a place where you’re kind of man love is tolerated and you can conduct your bromance in private where you don’t have to disgust anybody on purpose.. You know why you don’t see heterosexuals banging the drum garnering attention for themselves about their lifestyle…?? It’s s because it’s normal to behave that way. But best of all Mr. Ford is going to remove the pedophilia program you say that “all the parents” support and agree with. The child groomers including yourself who are so fond of this program may once again find themselves criminals in the eyes of a just and moral people.. bye-bye Bobby bye-bye
commented 2018-03-13 16:53:05 -0400
Yuck… that kind of thing is just gross and why would I want to see it to confirm..
I don’t have to burn my hand to know the fire is hot nor do I have to watch something disgusting to know that it’s wrong.!!
commented 2018-03-13 16:14:34 -0400
Robert, the caucus has finally figured out they have boarded a ship of fools…tick tock!
commented 2018-03-13 15:56:01 -0400
Flat earth,

Of course. Most here would share your view for something that haven’t even seen, because you all hate gay people – the sign of a small “c” conservative.

commented 2018-03-13 15:36:33 -0400
Robert I know, isn’t that awesome!. Best news beside Ford winning.
commented 2018-03-13 15:32:46 -0400
I think broke back Mountain is vulgar and repulsive and I have never seen the movie.!!
commented 2018-03-13 15:32:35 -0400
“What is deemed to be vulgar is subjective”
commented 2018-03-13 15:02:22 -0400
The other thing is someone in caucus actually ratted the Boy Blunder out. The Liberal ship has sprung leaks!
commented 2018-03-13 14:58:47 -0400
Not related, but the Daily Caller picked up on the story by the Hill Times in David Krayden’s article “Trudeau Faces Growing Caucus Revolt over Gun Control”. They know all about Trudeau’s temper tantrum in the Liberal Caucus. I think Jr. is desperately in need of a “time out”.
commented 2018-03-13 13:21:58 -0400
Yes, I saw the article already, well written.
commented 2018-03-13 13:21:03 -0400
Oh Bob, you are bringing up gay people again….save it for your day at the Pride Parade.
commented 2018-03-13 13:04:17 -0400
What is deemed to be vulgar is subjective. I am sure you find Brokeback Mountain to be vulgar.
commented 2018-03-13 13:01:52 -0400
Oh boy, the cry bully interprets his posts as “opposing views”, your personal attacks are not appreciated….some of your posts are beyond vulgar.
Your history on this site is very well known.
commented 2018-03-13 12:55:28 -0400
So you say Bob. The left wing media will certainly pull out all the stops, people are smarter than you give them credit for and will likely ignore cry bully liberals who smear Doug Ford. They will take the time to figure out for themselves if wish to support him in the election.

Remember, your prophecy skills are non-existent.
