EISEN: Ford vs. Wynne—what’s the difference?

Recently, Ontario politics has focused largely on personalities. And of course, personal characteristics matter. Voters have a responsibility to vet potential leaders and attempt to choose people of decency and integrity.

However, with the dust settled after the Ontario PC Party leadership race, and former Toronto city councillor Doug Ford’s candidacy confirmed, it’s worth pivoting away from personalities to think more deeply about governance. Specifically, we should ask what Ford’s policy approach as premier would look like.

He’s Not Wynne. Good enough for me.
