Ford Fest 2019: Supporters talk budget, savings and Bernier

David MenziesMission Specialist

After a rough few weeks —from getting booed at the Toronto Raptors’ victory party to overseeing a massive cabinet shuffle — Ontario Premier Doug Ford finally found himself treading on friendly ground thanks to headlining Ford Fest and being feted by thousands of Ford Nation fans.

Andrew Stephenson another murderous progressive!”

Antifa’s a bunch of low grade terrorists… I agree. The left doesn’t embrace scumbags.

Andrew Stephenson he was not stalking anyone and he asked the cops if he was far enough away at the time. TRY AGAIN! "

Perhaps he should have done the smart thing and asked a lawyer, not the cops. The lawyer would have likely yelled at him to get the fk away from there unless he wanted to go back to jail.

Andrew Stephenson the BBC reported on that trial before the verdict, why no charges for them??? A”

“The BBC” isn’t a person. But, to remove the false equivalency, let’s make it equivalent. How many of those BBC reporters were on suspended sentences for one of the following charges: assault, passport fraud, bank fraud, all charges on "Tommy"’s rap sheet?

Andrew Stephenson it takes a while to see impacts , why does the left never figure this out. After a year or 2 then we can see what Ford has done.
Under the Liberals Ontario became a HAVE NOT and had their credit rating downgraded multiple times. TRY AGAIN!"

I suppose those magic beans will sprout eventually, eh MAGA? It’s the left’s fault they’re not, clearly. It’s been a year. The deficit isn’t shrinking. It has also experienced downgrades under Ford, for this very reason.

Ontario is a “have” and has been since 2016. The equalization calculation lags by several years (uses rolling average), but it received very little in 2018 and none in 2019.

Ontario was a have-not from 2008 to 2016, six and thirteen years after change in the provincial government respectively. I don’t believe the government has a lot to do with global macroeconomics behind that (it has more to do with a cripplingly high dollar devastating exports in the aftermath of the recession), but if we MUST pick a culprit, I’ll point out that “have not” was achieved two years after the federal Conservatives took power, and eliminated two years after the federal Libs regained power.

Part of this may be the oil tail wagging the dog in Alberta, favouring half a million wealthy roughnecks in Alberta at the expense of ten million working and middle class workers in the East.

Andrew Stephenson the BBC reported on that trial before the verdict, why no charges for them??? And what about when Tommy was being harassed on the way to court, no charges for those twits. You are a willfully blind bigot who thinks people should only have rights according to their rank on your bigot scale.

Andrew Stephenson they were already convicted at the time. What part of that is above your level of understanding? Try and keep up with reality and not what your bigoted peers lie about.

Let’s cause a mistrial. That will fix things.

John Wick the courts told him to stay away from the courthouse, hew was not at the courthouse when he was arrested halfwit. And who the hell are they to take peoples rights of free speech? "

He was just outside it. If someone is stalking you, does it really make it any less threatening if they’re taking pictures of you from the street in front of your house? He was told to stay away from the trial.

He was on a suspended sentence. Convicted criminals do not have the same rights as free individuals.

“Why doesn’t the Rebel show the Ontario Debt clock, along with the Federal Debt clock, on the website. It will be a huge public service. People will be shocked when they see the thousands of dollars whiz by as our debt grows. "

It would show it accelerating, because Ford’s not eliminating the deficit. He’s cutting taxes for his pet causes.

Ontario was not going bankrupt under the Liberals. The debt is increasing at a lower rate than the GDP. IF your capacity to pay for debt is increasing faster than the debt, this is sustainable just about forever. (the same is true Federally – the debt-to-GDP ratio is decreasing).

Sad to see hate filled bigots like John Wick cheer on censorship and tyranny when it is someone he does not like. He seems to hate men who speak out against tyranny and a corrupt state because he is a scrotumless sheep himself who bows to tyrants.

What kind of loser thinks that is fine? Now go snuggle the pedophile grooming gangs that Tommy dared stand up to like a good wimp.

Robert Greeley,

Yep. He fucked up and couldn’t follow simple instructions from the courts to shut the fuck up. That’s what happens when you are dealing with a thug and a criminal whose second home for much of his life has been jail.

Robert Greeley,

Tommy is a provocateur. That’s his business. This isn’t some innocent guy who’s being punished for unpopular views. This is a guy who is very familiar with the inside of a prison cell. Tommy going to prison isn’t a death sentence, it’s a return to his second home.

As would be the case if you were to go to Hell John Wick.

Hey folks…Let me remind you that General George S Patton beat the crap out of the Wheremact and the Waffen SS and was chomping at the bit to keep going against Stalin and the Red Army…

and THEN

As …umm..Suggesting Officer…in charge of the occupation of West Germany…he had to face a reality that none of you ideologues seem to want to face…even Ghenghis Khan had to face it in China…

BUREAUCRACY!!!!!!!

It is as unchangeable as the fucking Hoover dam….once it is installed it’s damned hard to get rid of…you can’t just blow it up!!!

Where was the main-stream media when the Liberals were literally bankrupting Ontario. They are just as complicit as the inept Liberal government was regarding our Province. The media must have known what was happening. My goodness, now the media party is ‘cozying’ up to the NDP.

Doug Ford can’t do anything without the media party after him, and it is nothing but a coordinated hit piece after hit piece.

People don’t know the amount of debt we owe. They just feel there is an endless money tree.

Why doesn’t the Rebel show the Ontario Debt clock, along with the Federal Debt clock, on the website. It will be a huge public service. People will be shocked when they see the thousands of dollars whiz by as our debt grows.

Balanced budgets do nothing about paying down the debt. The Canadian and Ontario people have to become educated about the dire straits we are in.

NO one seemed to give a damn that SOME ONTARIANS FROZE TO DEATH BECAUSE THEY COULDN’T AFFORD TO HEAT THEIR HOMES BUT NOW THEY ALL WANT FORDS HEAD BECAUSE HE DARED CUT SOME OF YOUR ENTITLEMENTS TO CUT THE DEFICIT SO ALL ONTARIANS- NOT JUST A FEW PRECIOUS ONES, GET TO LIVE COMFORTABLY!!!
