Talking to Doug Ford at Ford Fest BBQ: Can Ford Nation rise again?

David MenziesMission Specialist

This past weekend, thousands attended the Ford Fest BBQ, the first one without Rob. The great turnout was a testament to the respect and appreciation the people of Ford Nation had and still have for Rob Ford.

I spoke with Doug about the enduring appeal of Rob’s “Respect for Taxpayers” message and about his own plans for the future.

Watch as we discuss whether he’s considering another run for Mayor or whether he’ll mount a campaign at the provincial level to bring the Wynne Liberal gravy train to an end.

Peter Babich commented – “Some people that care about people”

As opposed to bogus progressives who are always posing as something they are not – like concerned for others.

Jimmy Reece so was Rob’s , but of course the left wing media hated that and stalked him like fanatics.

Never been a better time for populism and candidates unattached to political systems and cabals – it’s enlightening to see populism spreading from the UK to EU to the US – Canada desperately needs to shake itself loose of the social/cultural/civil strangulation of the old line party system and advance direct grass roots/organic democracy.

Ford nation will rise because the monolithic left right party system withe the same set of patronage oligarchs has failed us – People know it at a gut level and the diversity of the Ford nation shows that populist democracy appeals to a wide diversity of individuals.

The left-right power cabals who allow the political elite to thrive by polarizing the electorate are like dinosaurs watching an approaching comet.

John Tory has actually been a fantastic mayor in Toronto and would bury Doug Ford if he were to run against him in the next election. Tory’s approval rating is very good.
