It's an interesting strategy, inviting as it does the memory of Kathleen Wynne and equating her policies (and their consequences) with the federal Liberals. I expect we'll see a lot of images to reinforce that same "same-as" messaging over the next little while.

Oh I was told by a CON supporter, the past is the past and it's only the Party that's in power now that's relevant......and that would be the anti middle class social services cutting Ford led CONservative Party.

No you weren't. No one said that to you.

You've been big on saying the past matters for conservatives however.... not Justins past though. Quite odd. People should hold all to equal standards.

Canada traditionally votes different provincial than federally. This is a big advantage that the Liberals are frittering away thanks the constant foibles of their leader.

Ford isn't popular because he isn't a spendaholic dough-brain like Wynne. It would have been nice if the Conservatives had elected a less polarizing leader that is such an easy target for the evil leftist slime out there to exploit, but such is the case.
LET'S GO BRANDON!

Justin Trudeau is a blight on our once great country.

[icon_lol2.gif] Nice spinning but we all know why the Federal CONs ordered Ford to stay out of the picture for 5 months. When you're getting booed at a historic Raptors win, the CONs have a problem with Ford.

Premier Ford denies unusually long summer break is linked to Federal election

Premier Doug Ford denies the legislature has been recessed for nearly five months to help the federal Conservatives in the fall election campaign.

The legislature will not resume until after the national vote -- and NDP leader Andrea Horwath has said Ford either plans to campaign for federal Conservative leader Andrew Scheer or has been told to lay low to avoid hurting him.

Exclusive poll reveals 'Doug Ford factor' a big problem for Scheer's Conservatives in Ontario

The poll shows half of Ontario's population sees their federal vote being swayed — mostly away from the federal Tories — by the Ford government’s performance

Canada Election 2019: Why Doug Ford doesn't want Andrew Scheer to win

With the possibility of Ford’s fight with teachers unions ending in a strike smack dab in the middle of the federal election, Scheer’s electoral prospects are looking even more dicey..........

Does Doug Ford really want Andrew Scheer to win the federal election?

Scheer was campaigning in Ford's backyard in Etobicoke yesterday and there was no sign of the premier. The scene was repeated at Scheer's next campaign stop in Brampton, where Ford turned the tide for the PCs during the 2018 provincial election.

Ford is already messing with Scheer’s chances in a big way in Ontario. The chaos of cuts he’s unleashed on the province has seen to that.

Until Doug started slashing with reckless abandon, Scheer was ahead of Justin Trudeau in Ontario. Now he’s behind, by how much depends on which polls you believe.

And with the possibility of Ford’s fight with teachers unions ending up in a strike in Ontario smack dab in the middle of the election to remind voters of the disaster Ford has been, Scheer’s electoral prospects are looking even more dicey.

Cuts are good. Cuts are great. Ontario can not afford to be a welfare state. Keep up the good work Doug Ford. Whiners gonna whine either way.

Cuts are sometimes bad. I just think Gilligan's Island when I see his photo.
