Ford Says Ontarians Concerned About Cuts Aren’t “Real People”
Doug Ford has gone on that attack as his polling numbers continue to slide and thousands of Ontario mobilize against his agenda.
In an interview with Global News, Ford claimed that voters who are speaking out about cuts aren’t “real people” and that they “have their hands in the public trough.”
Ford was responding to a question about whether he worries about polls showing declining support for his government.
The segment can be found from 2:59 onwards:
Doug Ford doesn’t understand democracy either. From 2:57-3:45 in this May 22 Global interview, Ford dismisses critics conceding advocates for people with disabilities “are real people, but they didn’t vote for me”. Ford believes he represents Ford Nation.https://t.co/xuOl34EJMo— Brent McConnell (@brentmYYC) May 28, 2019
The list of people protesting Doug Ford’s changes continue to grow and includes parents of autistic children, students, teachers, health care workers, lawyers, families and thousands of other Ontarians affected by Ford’s cuts.
The protests appear to be working. Ford’s polling numbers have fallen precipitously, with one poll showing Ford in third place with only 20% support.
