Doug Ford should give a huge thank-you to the @OntLiberal party for helping to ensure this victory for his second majority tonight.

@StevenDelDuca campaigned hard against the @OntarioNDP right to the very end.

I had a hunch that this was going on when I saw all the calls for strategic voting—which often just confuses progressively minded voters.

Small-C, conservative-lite, Liberals, will nver solve the problems created by big-C Conservatives.

Consider: of those who thought Ford was a great/good/OK premier, 13%/10%/33% of respondents were Liberal voters.

h/t to @christoaivalis.

1. I am now in virtual courtroom 14 of the Ottawa courthouse of the Ontario Court of Justice. The convoy protestor by « Dana Lee Melfi » has his camera open. There’s also someone whispering on zoom.

Bookmark this thread for my live court updates for June 2, 2022
2. Matthew Wolfson (@MatthewWolfson2), a counsel for the firm of David Anber (@DavidAnber), is also one of the participants in courtroom 14.

Mr. Wolfson and Mr. Anber are the counsels representing a lot of accused that are facing charges related to the convoy protests.
3. You can now access the virtual courtroom 7, the Ontario Court of Justice. I would recommend logging into this courtroom if you want to watch criminal pre-trials that involve convoy protestors.

#DougFord & his health minister have said private healthcare is coming to #Ontario. That means U.S. prices that bankrupt tens of thousands of people.

🧵At last night's Debate, Doug Ford was directly asked by @MikeSchreiner whether he would support Bill 86 (tabled by the NDP)-London Family Act-to fight Islamophobia and racist hate, notably, by the creation of an Anti-Racism Advisory and Advocacy Council. No response. #ONelxn
The Act developed after a the killing of a London, Ontario family last June. It also calls for a ban on Queen's Park protests that fuel racist, homophobic, transphobic or xenophobic hate, and prevent white supremacy groups from registering as societies. Ford diverted, saying...
that he has helped fund security outside mosques, after the meaningless statement: "there is no room for racism in Ontario." This is nothing without legislative action. #AntiRacism

Ever wonder what it's like as a disabled person trying to claw your way out of poverty in #Ontario? I can give you a clue. (A THREAD)
I applied for a program we have seen a certain minister bragging about. It pays to help people get training or education. She didn't say rules changed 2 weeks ago. You need 16 points to meet eligibility.
But if you're physically disabled, can't work most jobs and want to take a program that doesn't require a special certificate (paramedic or truck driver) you won't be eligible for funding. You also need to prove 26 wks of job searching.

#OntarioElection2022 #OntarioVotes 🧵

ODSP max today for a single person is $1169

The NDP plan to raise it by just $200 a month until 2023

The OLP plan to raise it by just $116 a month, until 2023

The PC's, Say they'll raise it by $58 a month and then inflation only raises 1/
That same single person on ODSP bringing in $1169 today is at least $1000 short of reaching the poverty line EACH month. $1000 in the hole.

It's like everything you buy, costs double.
Could you afford your home if your rent / mortgage increased 100% ? and your food, phone ? 2/
laundry, bus tickets, cleaning supplies, toilet paper..
Potato chips.
I bought Potato chips today and they cost $4.00 for a medium sized bag. For someone on ODSP, that would be like $8 because their income is SO low.

We've seen the polls. Remember, those are almost always *province wide* polls.

We don't need to win province wide; we just need to win our ridings. And to do that, all we need to do is #UniteTheVote

But that means getting organized. Here's a thread🧵 of ways you can help:
First and foremost, if you're in #Toronto, you can pledge to #UniteTheVote behind the candidate best positioned to beat Ford's Conservatives in your riding.

To take the pledge, head to notoneseat.ca/unitethevote
If you're somewhere in the rest of #Ontario, you can help by amplifying our message. Follow this account, and join our amplification network on Twitter and Instagram - check here for instructions: notoneseat.ca/take-action

#onpoli #VoteFordOut here are key ridings where you can make a difference by voting strategically to prevent the Doug Ford Conservatives from forming government.
Ajax riding, the strategic vote is Ontario Liberal. Otherwise Ford may win this seat. Don't be fooled by his candidate that was on the school board, they have no interest in public education. NONE. Image
#Brampton East a riding that could MOVE to Doug Ford's PC's if the voters don't support the NDP in this riding. Image

#Newfoundland & #Labrador's Liquor Corporation has for a long time, set some of the highest alcohol sticker prices in #Canada. And they're rising again! As much as 5 per cent per bottle, from wine to beer to coolers to spirits.

cbc.ca/news/canada/ne…
Last year #NLC brought in about $363M dollars in revenue, posting earnings of about $200M "the
highest in NLC’s history." #nlpoli This is from CEO & President Bruce Keating.
As per #Newfoundland & #Labrador’s Compensation Disclosure agreement, about 18 (management) members of #NLC 600 employees were paid more than $100,000 in 2020.

1/🧵#Ontario wave 6 analysis
One caution I have raised about new waves is that early infections start in younger age cohorts then progress to older. Here is the age-test positivity for those eligible for restricted PCR testing. As you can see,
#covid19 #covid19ontario #onhealth
2/ wave 6 in Ontario is following that pattern, eventually those more risk averse, better protected by vaccines and with fewer social/work/school contacts on average suffer enough cumulative exposure risk that they too become infected.
3/ The problem in Ontario is that we cannot monitor that properly since PCR tests were severely restricted to select groups like health care workers, long term care, and other special groups on 12/31/21. Nonetheless, the same age pattern has emerged.

No masking in Ontario makes complete sense…from a strategic #onpoli perspective…A 🧵

Ford govt strategists learned a lot from the #OttawaOccupation . There is small, but extremely vocal contingent of our population that is living in complete denial…
…of the pandemic. It’s far easier to ignore the pandemic, then it is to exercise the necessary precautions to end it.
In other words, personal sacrifice for community gain is no longer achievable.

“Politicians” around the country are looking to exploit this sentiment…
…and Doug Ford’s handlers are no different. The immediate discussion and subsequent lifting of protocols including masking shortly after the #OttawaOccupation ,sent the message that the Ford govt was listening to the plight…
