Fighting Ford on Handouts and Secrecy

I’ve posted two new election messages on YouTube. The first attacks the Ford Government’s abolition of licence plate fees with the “billion-dollar hole in the budget” and “driving is a privilege, not a right” arguments. I suggest using the money for social change, not private consumption. The social change I want is the defeat of the Ford Government, and the agent of change in Don Valley West, where I live, is Liberal Party candidate Stephanie Bowman.

The second message points out the irony of a so-called populist government that operates with as much secrecy as it can get away with. The key instance is its ongoing legal fight, now at the Supreme Court, to refuse to make public the Premier’s mandate letters to his ministers.

More to come, I’m just getting started!
