Anyone else enjoying Doug Ford’s ‘wag the dog’ crisis about Toronto City Council meant to distract from his broken promises and petty grievances? Bright shiny trinkets meant to distract the easily distracted.

From 12:01 through til morning, MPPs will be debating . Unlikely any PC MPPs will speak, so opposition will keep debate from collapsing. To the folks from Durham Region, send me your unanswered letters. I'll read 'em to your MPPs. jfrench-qp@ndp.on.ca

Nothing says government “for the people” like meeting under the cover of darkness to strip millions of Torontonians of effective elected representation, then clapping to drown out the people you’ve shut outside.

and have never been about "efficiency". They've always been about Doug Ford's petty revenge on his political enemies and the city that rejected him as mayor. If they weren't, why not wait until after the election and actually consult with people?

Doug Ford's wag the dog distraction #2: Doug Ford stops finance regulators from banning mutual funds that hurt investors. It appears that for the people means allowing dangerous and hard to understand investment products. For the rich.

How many millions of dollars in outside legal costs, travel costs for MPPs, overtime for Queen's Park staff and security, overtime and salary for political staffers, etc have Ontario taxpayers spent to save Toronto taxpayers $25 million?

Replying to @BBRyder
Bottom lines: 25 ward election in Toronto on Oct 22. will be withdrawn. The notwithstanding clause is back in the closet, for now. The appeal to the ONCA looms. This might end up at the SCC, where I expect Belobaba J's opinion will receive more respect than it did today.

Elections have consequences. This is what happens when you elect someone with no experience and with no plan. Let's remember tonight, and never take our democratic rights for granted again.
