The Reform Party phenomenon is the closest thing we've seen to "Trumpism" in federal politics. Reform took a lot of working class vote from the NDP in BC and did respectably in much of rural Ontario and smaller industrial centers. Today something like that phemonenon wouldn't fly in the Lower Mainland suburbs, but I can see much of the industrial heartland and rural and small town Ontario going for it, and perhaps even Northern Ontario.I could see a strange amalgam of Rob Ford and Donald Trump ideologies coming to power in either Ontario or Canada. However, unlike Trump's (and Leitch's) approach, I don't think xenophobia will be the centrepiece of that populist wave. Rather, it would be a brunt, anti-intellectual, anti-cosmopolitan smorgasbord of Prairie reformism, SW Ontario rust belt resentment, suburban 'keeping up with the Joneses' economic anxiety, and a rump of regional discontent, likely from Atlantic Canada.
