The Invitational Games bring together 2,500 athletes between ages 13 and 21.

Bob Hepburn: Why Doug Ford is worse than Mike Harris

Bob Hepburn: Why Doug Ford is worse than Mike Harris For the last 20 years I have ranked Mike Harris as Ontario’s worst premier — at least in the last 75 years and possibly ever. I was out of the country during Bob Rae’s tenure as premier, years that many Ontarians argue were disastrous, although much of Rae’s troubles can be attributed to the fact he was sworn in as premier about 17 hours before the start of a deep global recession that hit Ontario hard.

That’s because, in less than a year in office, Ford has clearly proven through actions and words that he warrants the title of “Ontario’s worst premier ever.

In response, Ford raved about the event and slammed the Opposition for missing the event.

“Last night was a great opening, fabulous opening. So many smiles on these kids’ faces,” Ford said.

“I find it ironic coming from the member from Essex,” he added, referring to Natyshak.

“He didn’t even bother showing up. At least we showed up.”
