"Canadas' Donald J Trump" – Doug Ford – wins top spot in Canadas' top Province, Ontario


"The election of Doug Ford and the PCs also upturns much of the conventional script of the Canadian commentariat.

First, Ford was unelectable as leader.

Then, he was going to screw up the campaign.

Now, he’ll become premier of Ontario, despite panicked editorials from the Toronto Star in the final days warning people that Ford would run roughshod over Toronto, perhaps not realizing that this threat sounded pretty good to a lot of voters."

Spud,

The "five" thing - is that the more famous brother, or this one? I did a brief surf, and couldnt find it.

A controversial, remarkable episode in Canadian Gov history.

Both brothers rode their fathers connections, and this one, Doug, benefits both from that and his brothers big base of popularity, which went to him "bigly." It goes by "Ford Nation."

He brings a conservo-populist leadership style, without the booze and drugs of his bro, and roughly 75% less charisma.

But he had enough to get elected before this on his own, so his is no schlub who just "rode in."

I am happy for Canada. But not really expecting much. I have heard too much about how much trouble they are in with various entitlements.
