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.

ONTARIO ELECTION THREAD: I've never liked majority gov'ts. When 25% of the electorate vote 38% for a party who gets 100% control, geez that's frustrating. What’s even more disappointing is that so many are still voting to re-elect our current provincial gov't to a majority. 1/19
Why are so many NOT holding Doug Ford accountable for all the bungling, buffoonery and cruelty? In the past 4 years, they have failed to listen, failed to plan, and failed to care. There are so many reasons to vote them out. 2/19
1) PANDEMIC HANDLING The sad rollercoaster and flip-flop of acting too late, then not having enough support during lockdowns, then easing things too early, ignoring science and then going back into lockdowns. The province’s vaccine rollout was chaotic. 3/19

Many people trying to read this explosive article of Doug Ford in bed with Russians, creating a back channel to bypass US sanctions, are getting a 502 error. So I’ll attach screenshots from @Kelans27. PLEASE AMPLIFY! #VoteFordOutJune2 #OntarioVotes #ONpoli #cdnpoli #PCcorruption Image

Since #DougFord only holds staged fake “rallies” for photos & videos spoon fed to #cdnmedia, then protest his donors & propagandists instead. Stage a protest @RogersMediaPR @BellMediaPR at #Postmedia esp at his disinformation propaganda rag the Toronto Sun. HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.
Stage protests at Galen Weston’s house. Loblaws corporate headquarters. Shoppers Drug Mart headquarters. Make the people installing #DougFord accountable for the strip mining of Ontario for their own bloated morbidly obese wealth. #VoteFordOutJune2 #MakeThemAccountable #ONpoli

Since Ontarians are on the cusp of choosing who will lead their province and in what direction, I thought I would reprise this thread: 1/19 #OntarioVotes
Canadians, language matters. Conservatives know this. They have been deliberately changing our terms of reference for years. We have seen them reframe lobbyists as "partners", and regular folks with local concerns as "special interest groups" (negative connotation). 2/19
In this pandemic it has been even more critically important for us to consider the well-being of others. We need to recognize the community we belong to. I suggest we push-back against one of the most insidious changes to popular speech championed by conservatives. 3/19

🧵 Timeline of Events on May 26, 2022 at Doug Ford’s rally in Hamilton

Arrived at the airport at 5:55 PM, about half an hour early. (I wanted to avoid a long lineup, but turns out there wasn’t any crowd to worry about.)

#onpoli #OntarioVotes #Hamilton #GetTheFordOut
By the way, the direction signs were hard to read from a moving vehicle.

You’d think someone in the label business would be better at signage/graphic design, but Doug Ford’s incompetence knows no bounds.
Got waved into an empty parking lot upon arrival. You can see the Cargojet hangar in the background, behind the Hamilton Police cruiser.

Le débat des candidates #onfr débute.

Un aperçu du plateau, en direct des studios de nos collègues chez TFO.

Je vais tweeter les faits saillants.

#onrc #OntarioVotes
Nous débutons avec des allocutions des chefs préenregistrées.
Doug Ford: en anglais, dit qu'il a créé des universités francos
Horwath: allocution complètement en français (!)
Schreiner: prononce quelques mots en français, parle de l'importance d'améliorer l'édu en FR.
Del Duca: allocution complètement en français aussi. Il promet des logements abordables pour les francophones (?), plus de services pour les aînés francos. Sa prononciation est bonne.

Ok - here we go... the #FordFact Check of the Ontario Leaders' Debate:

#FordFactCheck begins...

"Only party saying yes to cutting gas tax"
(Liberals have also supported this)

Ford: "All 3 parties want to hike your taxes... hike the gas tax.. "


Minimal tax hikes in the Liberal plan. Economists point out that taxes are too low right now for future costs.

Come on @StevenDelDuca - You can do better for #ODSP than "10/10/2/2/2oh they died".

Play back our zoom from March 28th.
(you recorded it, right ?)

Listen to what the community has been through.
there's -NO- reason the OLP platform should be comparable to Fords 1/ #OntarioVotes
Right now your tied for 4th best platform for #ODSP.

LONG term, Ford's is actually better.
because while you've got those two 10's..
you're gonna chase it forever with 2% ?

Ford's is horrible at 5% but it can never get worse with inflation indexing, yours can @StevenDelDuca 2/
if we have 5 straight years of 5% inflation, the PC plan puts people on ODSP at $1566 (which still is literally criminally low. 2027 and $1566 ? Jesus Christ)

Your plan with two 10% bumps chased by 2% raises after puts ODSP at just $1501 in 2027.

#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.
