    Playing to the "base"...

    New data showing that Ford supporters are dramatically more likely to think that whatever the levels of immigration are, too many aren't white.

    Thanks to vote splitting the PCs win a comfortable majority, NDP in opposition. Libs pick a new leader - someone from federal cabinet. Utter shit show for four years as Doug finds himself way over his head. No challenges to leadership as Tenycke whips the party and free to push through Harper’s agenda. Ford nationites rejoice despite the debt growing and taxes not falling.

    I still don't know why Christine Elliot wasn't chosen as the PC leader o_O

    Wow, that's quite the stupid series of answer options.

    The correct answer, of course, being "What the fuck does it matter?".

    If I may say, this sounds pretty terrible.

    Anyone winning a "majority" with a minority of votes is an outcome that could be classified as a bad dream. Doesn't matter who's in charge of said "majority".

    After all, "the idiots have taken over".

    Doctors aren't superhuman beings bereft of human fallibility.

    Meaning, I don't think we should expect especially enlightened behaviour from someone just because they have sworn an oath of this or that sort.

    Case in point: Ben Carson.

    Bans are for others, not for Fords

    For other parties and politicians, it's labelled 'corruption'. When Ford does the same it's called 'not being an elitist' and 'challenging the system'.

    I hate Ford. But he already apologized and returned the money.

    He's not re-signing over this. You shouldn't have got your hopes up.

    All this mud they are trying to sling at him doesn't appear to be working.

    Not mud being slung. He's doing it himself.

    I agree it's not having an impact, at least not so far.
