Maybe border restrictions could be tighter — but Ford is in no position to cast stones


Attempts to deflect blame won’t save lives or offer comfort to people living through lockdowns Ontario Premier Doug Ford — previously a big fan of Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland — is suddenly very eager to let Ontarians know how unhappy he is with how Justin Trudeau’s government is handling the pandemic. Ford’s office sent a news release to reporters at Queen’s Park on Tuesday to alert them to the fact that the provincial government had sent three “urgent” letters to the federal government calling for stricter border measures to better screen travellers to Ontario for COVID-19. Ford’s Progressive Conservative party has also now purchased ads on Facebook to criticize the federal government’s handling of the border. And it is reportedly planning to use “significant TV and radio time” to launch attack ads against the Trudeau government’s border policies.
