…Ford’s straight-talking style is jarring. For example, when a reporter asks him a question, he answers frankly. His answers have the ring of authenticity. It’s jarring only because Ontarians have grown accustomed to politicians speaking in terms that are rendered meaningless by political correctness.
Early media reviews of Ford’s style have been unflattering. A recent CBC interview portrayed the new leader as being “flustered” and “frustrated.” In fact, Ford’s interview was perfectly reasonable — and sounded so to Ontarians who are tired of the same old rhetoric.
