Doug Ford knows there is more to politics than facts and details

Like his brother Rob, the Ontario PC leader understands mood and feeling have the greatest impact on voters, even if policies lack logic

These days, Ford is often compared to Donald Trump. I think the comparison is overdone. I also think that Wynne’s decision to call Ford a liar and equate him with Trump smacks of desperation

Maybe decimating those liars, those that campaign on the left, but govern on the right, could be one of the best things that could happen to Canadian politics.

Andrea Horwath makes her play to displace the Liberals among Ontario’s left

Opinion: With a platform that's progressive and relatively fiscally restrained, the Ontario NDP is hoping to seize its window for success. Can it rise above the noise?

Liberals would rather the PCs get elected than support the NDP. Do you think is the reason why Liberal party status may be in jeopardy?

I think Liberals would rather the Liberals get elected than either the PCs or NDP.

Protesters disrupt speech by Kathleen Wynne to voice outrage at seven-week York University strike

While Wynne briefly appeared rattled by the two-minute protest that ended when the four were peacefully escorted away by staff, she said she shared the demonstrators’ frustration at the impasse.
