Totally has nothing to do with anything.

It has to do with the insulting comment you made about Doug Ford and his home schooling!

For those who are concerned about what's going on here, we in Ontario under Doug Ford are paying more so the rich can live better.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/business/article-ontarios-tax-expenditures-are-growing-faster-than-program-spending/

The report also analyzed the distribution of tax expenditures by income level, finding that higher earners received a large portion of the benefits, particularly from tax deductions from income. The highest-earning 20 per cent of households, with income above $123,400, received 75 per cent of tax deductions, a reflection of higher marginal tax rates, and of the fact that higher-income taxpayers can take greater advantage of savings and investment credits.

The distribution was more even for tax credits, which are deducted after tax has been calculated. For tax credits, the highest-earning 20 per cent received 26 per cent of the benefit, while the lowest-earning 20 per cent of households received 16 per cent of the benefit.

Regardless of what some on here try to falsely push....

Canadas Cost of Living goes UP, while wages Decrease

 

Canada’s cost of living is going up, despite the fact that wages aren’t, according to Yahoo Finance.

Statistics Canada has revealed that median after-tax income did not change for individuals, remaining at $61,400. That’s virtually unchanged from 2017 and 2018

This figure shows that wages have not kept up with inflation. It also doesn’t keep up with corporate profit, which rose nine percent in the space of that same period.

This has resulted in more insolvencies as Canadians struggle to keep their heads above water. The only province that did not feel this effect was Doug Ford’s Ontario, which saw incomes raise by 3.3 percent.

 

Nova Scotia had the lowest personal income, only taking home $52,200, while Alberta took $72,700, which was the highest.

Thank you for backing what I have been saying.

Because as you have posted, even in Ontario wages aren't keeping up with corporate profits, and 'local' inflation.

Even though Ontario had the highest wage growth, it still wasn't beating inflation.

Because they were funding before the conservatives were giving tax cuts to the rich.

Finally some leadership versus what the other so called leaders who continue to look for “options”.

Meanwhile ROME burns (or is already burnt ) 

                                      Ford calls out to industry and industry answers the call

 

 

We need your help, that was Premier Doug Ford’s plea to Ontario’s industrial base on Saturday, expanding on a call made earlier in the week to try to make essential items to fight COVID-19 right here at home.

“The Ontario spirit never ceases to amaze me,” said Ford.

The Premier noted that companies like Linimar, General Motors, Martinrea — all auto companies — offered to retool their facilities to make medical equipment to fight COVID-19.

Ford also announced that his government has put a whole team in charge of helping manufacturers who can shift the production from their current lines to make essential equipment like ventilators, masks and swabs.

“We’re ready to mobilize Ontario’s manufacturing might to help the entire country. We want Ontario to be the workshop of Canada in the fight against COVID-19,” Ford said.

”See that guy?

That’s Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario.

Dental Brands, a company in Markham, texted him to say they were donating 90,000 masks to hospitals in Ontario. Ford drove to their warehouse and loaded the masks onto his truck. Didn’t tell his staff.

Got the masks.”

Was just going to post the same thing but see that you have beat me to it.  I don't live in Ontario and DF is not "my" guy but kinda looks like he's doing a pretty good job dealing with this issue.  Some reporter today tried to get him to criticize Truedope and he wouldn't take the bait.  (Good thing they didn't ask me!)

Doug Ford visits auto part manufacturer, delivers 1000 new respirator masks

 

“ Doug Ford is leading by example. Not only has he personally delivered some 90,000 surgical masks in his truck, but he has also now helped Woodbridge Auto Group’s factory in Vaughn deliver 1,000 respiratory masks, according to CP24.  

On Tuesday, the factory was visited by Ford, where he helped deliver the masks. These masks are important as they are crucially similar to the desperately needed N95 masks that aren't produced anywhere in Canada.

Ford and his staff received 1,000 of the factory's new masks for distribution. 

“While our government continues to pursue and exhaust every avenue available to secure the PPE needed to fight COVID-19, today marks the beginning of Ontario moving towards greater self-sufficiency on vital supplies that will keep us well equipped now and into the future,” said Doug Ford in a statement.”

I am impressed with the way that Ford has stepped up and shown a more mature and cooperative nature.  

The way he is being supportive of the public, and providing funding he's almost being...…..  liberal 😉

Let's see if it continues after the crisis has passed.

Further to the above, on a lighter note....

https://www.thebeaverton.com/2020/04/conservative-party-submits-doug-ford-for-tests-fearing-he-may-have-contracted-socialism/

Toronto, ON – Ontario Premier Doug Ford has been submitted for extensive testing today after Conservative Party Executives expressed that he was beginning to exhibit symptoms of socialism.

Premier Ford, who has a sterling reputation for populist politics and aggressive cuts to provincial services, began exhibiting signs shortly after declaring a state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He first began showing mild symptoms like ‘empathy for low-income people.’ His symptoms worsened as he began to show gratitude and respect for teachers, healthcare workers, minimum-wage employees and, worst of all, the Liberals.

“We knew something was very wrong when he complimented Crystia Freeland, which is a clear indication that he’s losing his sense of taste,” said President of the Conservative party, Brian Patterson. “We made the immediate recommendation that he self isolate to ensure that he does not transmit that sort of opinion to others”. 

Experts in the field of deadly diseases like socialism said the problem likely originated someplace in Denmark. “Despite what some people think, this is not just a disease that affects the ideal-compromised.” said socialism expert and ‘Big C’ Conservative, Dr. Leeland Marks. “People can be asymptomatic carriers of socialist thoughts and opinions. You may think you have a perfectly healthy love for a neo-liberal profit-focused economy, but little do you know you could secretly be harbouring the idea that housing and healthcare are human rights, which is obviously sick.” 

“Socialism is incredibly contagious because it overwhelms the body’s sense of empathy until taxing the rich to provide a more just society feels nice and makes sense. To stop the spread, we ask that Canadians practice ‘Social Distancing”, in which you distance yourself from any type of politics that could be considered ‘Socialized’.”

Premier Ford will be moved to an ICU (Intensive Conservative Unit) until he stops saying nice things about The Toronto Star. If the condition worsens, experts fear that Ford could begin supporting a universal basic income, at which point he would be considered dead.

Ford calls Ottawa rule barring families from coming to nursing home windows ‘ridiculous’

Ontario Premier Doug Ford slammed an edict issued by four municipal nursing homes in Ottawa that barred family members from coming to their relative’s window to say hello, calling it “ridiculous” and advised people to disobey it.

Four nursing home administrators in Ottawa told families to stop coming to the windows of the facilities to see their loved ones this week, saying there had been reports that some visitors did not properly distance themselves in order to protect residents from the possibility of COVID-19 infection.

“That’s ridiculous – you have a loved one at a home – most of them are elderly – and the last time you get see your parents in some cases. I don’t know who’s come up with this ridiculous idea but they need to rethink it,” Ford said.

This is risky imho...My question is...how will they keep those from the GTA, from going outside for services they can’t get in Toronto.? 
 

“ In a significant U-turn, Premier Doug Ford now says Ontario will forge ahead with a regional approach to reopening the economy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A mere 24 hours after the premier said “we just have to be cautious,” he announced Friday the province would move region by region for the next stage of opening businesses and services in the weeks ahead.

With the Greater Toronto Area accounting for 65.8 per cent of Ontario’s coronavirus cases, Ford said he reconsidered his earlier stance that the entire province should reopen at the same time.

“It’s very fluid. It moves very quickly,” he said, explaining why Ontario will follow the lead of neighbouring Quebec, Manitoba, and New York, which have embraced regional strategies.

“You have to be ready to make the changes.”

Asked what had changed so suddenly and dramatically between Thursday and Friday, Ford said: “There’s never a light bulb that goes off in my head. I take the advice — it’s about a team approach.”

“I’m no health expert, I rely on health and science. I am not going to go against the advice of medical professionals in this,” the premier told reporters at his daily teleconference.

Ford stressed that because Ontario has finally ramped up testing for COVID-19, which has killed 2,272 people in the province, there is a clearer picture of the “hot-spots,” which includes Brampton and Scarborough.

“We have more testing, we have a better scope on what’s happening,” he said.

As disclosed by the Star on Thursday, Progressive Conservative MPPs from outside the GTA have been lobbying the premier to rethink his “one size fits all” approach.

There are relatively few coronavirus cases in North Bay, Parry Sound, Sudbury, Algoma, Kenora, Kingston, Renfrew, Huron-Perth, Prince Edward County, Peterborough and most of the southwest other than Windsor.

Some Tory MPPs in those areas have told Ford they are feeling pressure from their constituents to allow more people to go back to work.

“How am I supposed to keep telling businesses in my area to remain closed for what’s essentially a Toronto problem?” one rural PC MPP, who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to freely discuss internal caucus discussions, said earlier this week.

Dr. David Williams, the province’s chief medical officer of health, emphasized that the end of a testing blitz of all nursing-home residents and staff has allowed broader testing in the province.

That has made regional openings possible, but these will likely be well away from the GTA and its many hot spots.

“We’re getting a picture of what’s happening live time,” said William, who noted some health units are “seeing no cases for…sometimes two or three weeks in a row, and that’s encouraging.”

But it likely won’t be a free-for-all when parts of Ontario reopen further.

Williams suggested it’s unlikely a region with a low number of cases would be allowed to open if a neighbouring region, such as the GTA, has a lot.

“That makes it very difficult for the public to understand the rationale,” he added. “A little bit further out might make more sense.”

Other points of concern are areas with border crossings to the U.S. and in northern Ontario, where First Nations communities are more vulnerable to COVID-19 and must be protected.

As a policy is developed, Williams hinted there could be guidance from public health officials not to travel to regions that have opened to “respect each other’s jurisdictions” and to “contain this virus.

Ontario, which has been under a state of emergency since March 17, entered the first stage of reopening the economy on May 19, which allowed shops with street entrances to reopen as long as customers and staff kept safe social distancing.

Stage two would permit more workplaces to open as well as outdoor spaces and some larger public gatherings. Until June 9, Ontario is limited gatherings to five people unless they live in the same household.

A third stage, which could be months away, would allow all workplaces to reopen and relax restrictions on public gatherings.

However, the government’s framework for reopening warn that “large public gatherings such as concerts and sporting events will continue to be restricted for the foreseeable future.”

In Quebec, where 4,363 people have died from COVID-19, there is a phased regional approach to opening.

Outside of Montreal, the epicentre of the pandemic in the province, much of the economy will be up and running next week, including indoor shopping malls.

In Manitoba, where seven people have died of COVID-19, most businesses — including restaurants, bars, and gyms — will be open next week.

New York, which has seen more than 10 times as many deaths than Ontario despite a state population just one-third larger, also has a phased regional reopening.

State regions must meet seven different metrics before being allowed to move a broader stage of reopening, including a sustained decline in total hospitalizations over a three-day rolling average, a decline in deaths, and at least 30 per cent spare capacity of all hospital beds, including in intensive-care units.

Western New York, less than two hours drive from Toronto, currently meets all requirements for reopening selected businesses and services.”
