Ontario is going into another lock down with a stay in place order
Starting at midnight Thursday. Ford gov't reacting to complaints they didn't do enough last week.
So that's me out of work again.
Meanwhile there's millions of vaccine doses just sitting around waiting to be administered while Ford plays maybe maybe not with giving them out.

How the fuck is Ford still in power of any sort? He has been a piece of shit for years. He was a piece of shit as a city councillor in Toronto, fortunately failed to become mayor. How the hell did that fat sack of garbage become Premier?
He should be beaten to death with a bicycle.

R2 Because the choice was between a lesbian woman, a single mother, and a fat old rich white guy (and high school drop out) and naturally voters went for the old rich white guy.

[quote]naturally voters went for the old rich white guy
And oddly enough, many of the people who voted for him were not old rich white guys. Just guys who hated the lesbian.

R3 The NDP were within a spits throw of winning the election. They started to surge in the polls and were on the cusp of overtaking the Conservative's lead, but they ran out of money and added to that the Liberals turned their focus away from Ford and went after the NDP because if the NDP took the lead, the Liberals would have one zero seats. Sadly Ford's popularity has actually gone up since the start of the pandemic.

Isn't he the same guy with well-documented drug and rage problems?

because they can't vaccinate to get ahead of the new variants fast enough
because many people are ignoring best practices - congregating with others indoors
because ICU beds are trending to non-availability
because people are dying as result of other people's selfish behavior
because none of the above will make sense to a shocking number of people until they themselves are turned away from ICU's or have a ventilator rammed down their throats
because common sense
because a lot of people are straight up assholes

R8 Also basically everything the Ford government has done since last summer has been half-assed and not what actually needs to be done because he refuses to spend the money the federal government gave him for things like mass testing, increased contact tracing etc.

If Canada had done like other countries and closed the airports we'd be better off.

Because the right wing media (CTV) conspired to make him the candidate by manufacturing a story about his closest rival for the PC Party leadership.

Also if he had spent less time trying appease his voting base and more time actually formulating a vaccination plan that targeted people who actually need them regardless of age group -we wouldn't be in this situation. It's another case of Gen X gets fucked while the boomers win.

I thought all this was going away after the US presidential election?

It appears to be the same restrictions we had in Janaury, the only difference this time is big box stores are only allowed to sell groceries for in person shopping everything else is curbside pickup..

While watching Green Acres this morning, there was an alert telling people to stay home unless it's for food or medical reasons. Or exercise.

R6, I believe you are thinking of his brother, Rob Ford, who was Mayor of Toronto and a forerunner of Trump Populism. This is his equally evil but somewhat less openly stupid brother, Doug.
Of course, I'm American, so maybe Doug has rage and drug issues too.

I haven't watched CITY-TV News in a while (a couple of weeks maybe) and saw Ford last night sitting like stooped on his chair, looking absolutely defeated. He looked flushed, and this odd kind of guilty look on his face. Maybe fear, not guilt. Anyway, good on him. Absolute failure not to get this under control. Had a year to do this.
