Hydro’s $6M Man gone but how did Doug Ford do it?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night’s show, broadcaster Jerry Agar joined me to discuss how Doug Ford managed to keep his promise to get rid of Hydro One CEO, Mayo Schmidt, without costing taxpayers millions more in penalties.


All the fancy people said it couldn’t be done and it is true that a lot of these boards and agencies burrow themselves into the government writing themselves sweetheart deals that include pricey termination contracts.

Watch as Jerry explains how it is we’re now saying goodbye to the whole board and the Six Million Dollar Man at just a fraction of the severance everyone thought would have to be paid.

Indeed Robert McClelland… Now that would really be symbolic… And the generations of birds and bats being decimated, would thank you…

Next up for Ford is tearing up the outrageous long term contracts with Ontario’s wind turbine industry through legislation. Tanya Granic-Allen won’t be disappointed.

Even my friends in Ontario who made fun of Ford in the first place, are biting their tongues these days… When Albertans do indeed “Flush Notley”, as they will, it is only hapless B.C., being held ransom by three Greenie seats, that is going to have to decide whether to go along with the Boy Blunder’s “reindeer games” or grow their natural resources based economy… Once that happens, there is a definite nexus looming as Western Canada, including Ontario, draws a line at the Ottawa River and tells Quebec and the Maritimes, to “stuff it”, as it should have already done decades ago…

We are going to have to start finding and supporting the right people who will be able to clean up the mess Justin is making. Ford is definitely on my list. I really hope he is the start of a movement back to common sense in this country. Canada is listing badly and needs ‘righting’.

Imagine Doug Ford as PM, with him and Donald Trump together and pehaps Nigel Farage or Boris Johnston in the UK. Wow! Civilisation would return back to normal.

I am so glad that my home province is headed back to sanity and is no longer under the dirty thumb of a person (and I use the term ‘person’ very sparingly) that does not know what frickin gender it is and tries to shove their twisted sexual behavior and beliefs on everyone but most despicably upon our youth. I’ am so happy the witch – spelled with a ‘B’ – is out on her ass and Ontario now has a sane conservative in charge.

In the short time Doug Ford has taken office, he’s managed to get quite a bit accomplished. Thanks from an Ontarian who is so happy the McGuinty/Wynne reign of lunacy is over!!!

I wouldn’t be surprised Paul Taylor that was indeed what happened… Having found fault in a forensic audit, Schmidt could have been suspended without pay and if he counter-sued via the courts that would have dragged on for years… And once the head of the snake was cut off the rest of the board all had to face reality… At any rate, a good, good omen for Ontario’s future…

I’ll bet there was a forensic audit and it uncovered the obvious.

These sum sucking Liberal (bought and paid for) Hydro One clowns got caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Mayo and his gang were hired by the CBC.
They would easily fit into the State broadcaster’s corporate structure of ripping the taxpayers off with bloated salaries and benefits.

Wonder how much loot this useless thief and his cohorts absconded with on the way out!
