Is it safe to say so much of what we have come to love (and hate) about Ontario will be forever changed on Thursday night?
As a Dad of young children, & teacher, I'm struggling with what a PC majority might mean for school communities, the environment, and our health care system.
I have knocked on doors, made phone calls and talked with friends and neighbours. I am voting with a few on Thursday in order to help get out the vote, but I'm afraid it won't be enough.
At this time, I really think the only chance we have of stopping Ford and his PCs is to swallow our preferred party pride, check our hearts, and vote for the candidate most likely to defeat the PC candidate, riding by riding.

#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

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…

Doug Ford & the @OntarioPCParty have been a disaster for #Ontario since day 1. Between now & election day, @fordnation & his lackeys will try to make you forget the harms they've done.

I hope this thread will help you remember some of it when you get to the polls.

.@fordnation's move to privatize healthcare by rushing the massive “People’s Health Care Act” through legislature without any meaningful consultation, received wide-spread condemnation from medical professional across the province.

cbc.ca/news/canada/to…
The PHCA has proven to be a nightmare for hospitals and long-term care, and although they have tried to steer the messaging away from privatization, little has changed in their actions as they move to create a two-tiered healthcare system in Ontario.

Twitter wants to #VoteFordOut2022 but that isn't going to make it happen. Most Ontarians aren't even on twitter.

In this thread, we break down our plan to elect a better government. 🧵
Going into this election, Doug Ford is a little weaker than he was in 2018, the Liberals are a little stronger and the NDP is a little weaker. We can expect Ford to lose a few seats, and if we flip a few more we can ensure a minority -- meaning he will have to compromise.
Deep canvassing -- meaningful conversations at the door with lots of listening -- is proven to work.

This has everything to do with $$ Improved ventilation has been spoken about in #Ontario almost from the beginning. @fordnation didn't want to spend the money on #ontarioschools, so they gambled that #COVID could be managed without having to retrofit schools or add #HEPA filters
COVID being #Airborne has been known for over a year, and yet they didn't provide essential PPE to you and your teachers.Testing could have kept you in school, but they chose not to implement a regimented testing system. Any kid born in 2004 who will be eligible to #vote
remember that this govt gambled away your highschool years, your rites of passages, your education, your emotional well-being and your physical well-being because they didn't think you were worth protecting. Show them your worth on June 2nd, 2022. #VoteFordOut2022

It is well after 11AM. Where is @fordnation? @Sflecce? @celliottability? What a buncha losers.
Twenty-three minutes late. “ExpoDENtially.”
So teachers get TWO days notice to switch to Online teaching. Classy.

Everything this clown is saying & doing would have been GREAT six weeks ago.

Also @celliottability looks like crap. Like maybe she’s cluing in that we will NEVER forget her shameful role in this travesty.
