Doug Ford has been absent for weeks and shut down the legislature for 144 days. He’s suddenly turned up for a 600$/plate Conservative fundraiser. Good to know he’s working hard “for the people” #onpoli  #cdnpoli   #elxn43    …

Funny that Doug Ford's new gas pump stickers forgot to tell you his Ontario govt takes 8% sales tax + 14.7% fuel tax. On a $50 fillup @$1.20/litre, that's $1.83 to Ottawa (rebated in your tax return) vs $7.35 going to Ford in fuel tax + $4.59 PST = $11.94! Sticker shock?

Doug Ford is turning something that he didn't run on, that serves no urgent purpose, that his base wasn't clamouring for, and that seems to be based mostly on personal beefs from his days as a municipal politician into his defining issue as premier.

Doug Jones, a red-state Dem who was viewed -- at one point -- as a gettable vote, expresses frustration at GOP request over Ford testimony. "It's unreasonable for the committee to force her hand without doing a reasonable investigation. I think they jumped the gun."
