Edward Keenan: Doug Ford has done what no one else could: united Toronto city council

Edward Keenan: Doug Ford has done what no one else could: united Toronto city council Premier Doug Ford has recently taken to characterizing those who oppose his massive retroactive cuts to Toronto Public Health. It’s just a “bastion of lefties” wasting “ridiculous amounts of money,” he said this week. Let us, then, venture into this bastion to see these lefty spendthrifts in action, at Tuesday’s Toronto city council meeting, where a motion from the former leader of Ontario’s Progressive Conservative Party, Mayor John Tory, was being debated. The motion called for the province to reverse the cuts immediately. Councillor Stephen Holyday, of Ward 2 Etobicoke Centre, rose to speak.

Ford has a net favourability of -53.5 per cent, meaning more poll respondents dislike the premier than like him. Mainstreet Research told HuffPost Canada that it included Tory as an option for Liberal leadership because another poll released two weeks ago indicated that he would be the front-runner

TORONTO — Ontario Premier Doug Ford is already less popular than former premier Kathleen Wynne was at the end of her time in office, new research suggests.

Ford has a net favourability of -53.5 per cent, meaning more poll respondents dislike the premier than like him.

Almost 20 per cent of the 996 Ontario residents polled by Mainstreet Research said they have a favourable view of Ford, while 73 per cent said they have an unfavourable opinion of him.

In April 2018, Wynne’s net favourability was -35.3 percent.

What Doug Ford's adviser on alcohol sales is considering

What Doug Ford's adviser on alcohol sales is considering The Ford government's top adviser on reforming alcohol sales will soon hand over his recommendations, and CBC News obtained some insights into his thinking in an interview. Ken Hughes is a former Conservative MP who also served in the Alberta PC government as a cabinet minister. His mandate from Ontario Premier Doug Ford and Finance Minister Vic Fedeli is to recommend ways to increase choice and convenience in alcohol sales. "What we're looking at is ... how can we modernize the alcohol beverage sector in Ontario so that it is more reflective of people's preferences and choices," said Hughes in the interview.

“We have never seen an imcumbent [sic] premier reach these depths in popular opinion with barely a year into his mandate.”

If an election were held today, nearly 40 per cent of Ontarians would vote Liberal, the poll found. The NDP is in second place with 24 per cent support and Ford’s ruling Progressive Conservatives are in third place with 22 per cent, a 10 percentage-point drop since April.

The Green party, which has only one elected MPP, now has the support of 12 per cent of Ontarians.

Tory tells Ford city will look for savings, if province cancels this year’s budget cuts

Tory tells Ford city will look for savings, if province cancels this year’s budget cuts Mayor John Tory is offering Premier Doug Ford “a path forward” to end their feud over major funding cuts poised to hit Toronto public health, child care and transit services. But Tory’s offer — to scour city finances with provincial and possibly private-sector help — hinges on the penny-pinching being saved for next year’s budget, with Ford halting this year’s estimated $178-million funding clawback. The mayor notes city council’s vote last week asking Ford to cancel cuts, most of them retroactive to April 1 — after Toronto and other blindsided municipalities had approved 2019 budgets with spending plans and tax bills.

Mainstreet Research also asked decided Liberal voters who they’d like to see become the party’s next permanent leader.

Wynne resigned from the job after her party was decimated, down to just seven seats in the legislature, in last year’s election.

Most Liberal voters who have made up their mind said they’d like to see Toronto Mayor John Tory — someone who has indicated he has no interest in the job — take over.

Sixty-five per cent said Tory should lead the party, while 11 per cent said MPP Mitzie Hunter, who is expected to jump into the race, is best for the job.

The only two candidates who have actually declared their intention to run for leadership had the smallest levels of support, with Michael Coteau polling at five per cent and Stephen Del Duca at 3.3 per cent.

A majority of Liberal voters — 54 per cent — were not tallied because they are unsure who the next leader should be.

The poll is based on automated phone interviews done on May 21 and May 22. The margin of error is +/- 3.1 per cent and is accurate 19 times out of 20.

Mainstreet Research told HuffPost Canada that it included Tory as an option for Liberal leadership because another poll released two weeks ago indicated that he would be the front-runner if he ran.

“We were curious to see if the level of support for Tory was the same that [Corbett Communications owner] Mr. Corbett found earlier,” Mainstreet Research vice president Joseph Angolano said in an email.

Tory’s office told HuffPost he doesn’t want the job.

“Mayor Tory is focused on leading Toronto - the job that he was elected and re-elected to do,” spokesman Don Peat said in an email.

The mayor was involved in provincial politics in the mid-2000s but he was not a Liberal. He led the Progressive Conservatives.
