May 17th, 2022 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL: Ford’s climate fiction (May 2022)

Inflation, housing and a green transition are all key elements

By Chrystia Freeland

On that Thursday in March, just over two years ago—when our travel plans were hastily cancelled, when our children came home from school, and when we rushed to the grocery store to buy toilet paper and hand sanitizer—we knew then that this virus would disrupt our lives.

EDITORIAL: Ford should be first (Winter 2022)

March 14th, 2022 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL: Ford should be first (Winter 2022)

Policing is largely a provincial matter, but faced with massive trucks and bouncy castles clogging up central Ottawa, plus blockades at key border crossings, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had to invoke the Emergencies Act. As usual, Ontario Premier Doug Ford was too focused on the next election to do his job, and he should have to answer for it.

EDITORIAL: Ford stalls, families suffer (Jan. 2022)

February 4th, 2022 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL: Ford stalls, families suffer (Jan. 2022)

November 11th, 2021 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL: Doug Ford, the chaos king (Fall 2021)

EDITORIAL: Ford’s flawed passport (Aug. 2021)

September 8th, 2021 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL: Ford’s flawed passport (Aug. 2021)

Doug Ford emerged this week after weeks of summer slumber to announce a “vaccine certificate system” which is both late and lame. He then prorogued the legislature, lest he be answerable to it, and headed back into seclusion.
