Ford PCs attacked over “retro-cool” license plate reboot: Here’s how he can make it work

David MenziesMission Specialist

Ontario’s logo is getting a reboot and a new slogan will grace licence plates in the province. Normally, I’d oppose such needless spending, but given the status quo, I’m reluctantly supporting this effort.

The “Ontario: Yours to Discover” plate slogan will be replaced with “A Place to Grow” which is taken from the song that played at the Ontario pavilion during Expo ’67.

Naturally, the usual suspects are attacking the Ford PCs for replacing the current slogan, but that slogan was itself an ’80s replacement for the previous slogan of “Keep it Beautiful.”

And this new slogan is fitting if the Ford PCs stay the course and ignore the opposition and media party critics and actually make Ontario great again.

As for the provincial logo, that abomination has got to go, and I can forgive the province coughing up $89K for a redesign considering that the Liberals spent $219K for their logo redesign in 2006!

Maybe “Fiscal Conservatism: Dig it!” should have been the new plate slogan.

LMAO @ Stephenson

That’s all the troll has now – lies, innuendos, and slander. The troll must truly be butt hurting since Wynne was tossed to the curb and its provincial wing of the Red Tent was decimated.

I seem to recall a whole lot of tooth-gnashing the last time the logo got changed for what appears to have been a purely political rebranding. It’s different when conservatives do it, apparently, perhaps a handy distraction from an austere government that is somehow outspending the spendthrift Liberals.

That logo on the license plate looks a lot like the dick-and-balls doodles you’d see gouged into middle school textbooks. Heh.

Ah! How well do I remember the Ontario Pavilion at Expo ’67 and the regular playing of the then innovative “split-screen” documentary “A Place To Stand: A Place To Grow: Ontari-ari-ario..” Give us a land of lakes, and ice and snow. and we will build Ontario… How proud I was of growing up in Ontario in those days!!!… These days I would not even think of visiting my parents graves there until Doug Ford turns things around…

Here’s a little trip down memory lane when Doug Ford was interviewed by CTV before the federal election.
The title: ‘Trudeau ’totally incompetent’ to be PM: Doug Ford"

Of course, the CTV anchor (Jennifer Burke) is the most anti-conservative excuse for a journalist on that channel. She used to be on the local television in Vancouver.
I don’t think Ford has changed his opinion.

Robert Greeley….Jody herself is the reason that there no charges. Here is what she said:
While clearly upset by her government’s handling of the file, Wilson-Raybould, who was at one point Canada’s most senior lawyer, clearly disagrees something criminal occurred.

In front of the committee she was asked multiple times if the pressure exerted on her broke the law.

“In my opinion, it’s not illegal,” she told the committee.

Why is Trudeau not up for charges? I really hope for Canadian’s sake.. The RCMP are building a case to put him and his crew away for a very long time.

Doug’s ‘A place to grow’ is fine and let us hope that real Canadians will follow the message, ‘A place to grow…children’. Stop the real Canadian Race from becoming extinct or outnumbered and culled.

ROBERT GREELEY… Ezra has had Bernier on the Rebel but quite a while ago. I agree it would be nice if the Rebel were to give him more exposure. He is the only one who is making real sense.

Why is Bernier not on the PM debates? Why is the corrupt media whores not giving him air time? This is how corrupt Canadian Politics are!! We still have to hear from a liberalist globalist dirt bag like Wynne.. when she and her crew was destroyed in the Ontario Election.

I heard from the non status liberalist goofball Wynne bag again on the radio.. WHY??? The Ontario people kicked her to the curb with fine fashion… VOTED IRRELEVANT!!.. non status!

But the Trudeau corruption crew and his media whores are on full freak out mode!!

Why the hell is she on the airwaves blurting out about how she thinks the navy blue plates are shameful because it’s the colors of the CPC? You wanna know why Wynne! Because we the Ontario people voted for the CPC and Doug Ford.. AND IT WAS A total destruction of your corrupt Liberal crew.
