This is a big shift for a group that in the last two elections received just three to four per cent of the vote. It was in part this dynamic that cemented Maxime Bernier’s participation in the upcoming leader’s debate. Ontario Farmer Goes Big With Message Comparing Scheer To Ford .

The Facebook post was shared hundreds of times over the weekend.

The sign is a shot at federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and Ontario Premier Doug Ford, the province’s Progressive Conservative (PC) leader.

Unlike Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, Ford has shied away from getting involved in the federal election. Scheer and Ford have not campaigned together since the federal election campaign kicked off on Sept. 11.  

Scheer was asked about why the Ontario hasn’t appeared with him at campaign stops in the battleground province.

“The focus here is about supporting our candidates, getting our message out to people all over this country in every region,” Scheer told reporters last week.

“We’re going to win seats in provinces that haven’t had Conservative premiers in a while, we’re going to win seats in every region of this country.”

Despite his popularity taking a dive this summer, Ford insisted last week that his PC government was still popular in Ontario more than a year after winning a majority mandate.

“I’ve always said I don’t believe in polls, right? But you see the polls,” Ford said. “The media refuses to report on the good ones. They report on the bad ones. But the truth of the matter is if the election was held today, we would win.” 

However, the premier has been booed several times while appearing in public in recent months, including at the opening of the Youth Special Olympics in May. 

Liberals have been regularly linking Scheer to Ford on the federal election campaign trail.

Ford loves farmers

This isn’t the first time Langs has used his farm for political purposes. 

Why Scheer campaigns with Kenney but not Ford

  Why Scheer campaigns with Kenney but not Ford Alberta Premier Jason Kenney fired up the crowd in front of a candidate's campaign office in Edmonton on Saturday as Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer hopped on stage. It's a scene you likely won't see repeated during the election campaign in Ontario, which is led by Conservative Premier Doug Ford. Conservatives now make up most of provincial governments across Canada. So why does Scheer embrace one premier, but seemingly avoid another?Ontario is shaping up to be a main battleground on election night. The path to a majority government for either the Conservatives or the Liberals runs through the province.

In September 2015, the farmer carved the message “anybody but Harper” on his property, targeting then-Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper.

“He’s the worst prime minister we’ve ever had,” Langs said of Harper in a 2015 interview with the Brantford Expositor

Scheer did not issue a response to the demonstration on his social media accounts. Ford didn’t directly address the message either, although he did reference rural workers on his Twitter account Sunday. 

“I love our farmers,” Ford wrote in a video post.

Randall Denley: Trudeau's desperate Scheer-is-just-like-Ford strategy is laughable .
Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has a clear message for Ontarians: Don’t vote for Conservative Andrew Scheer because that would be “doubling down’ on Ontario Premier Doug Ford. Ford and Scheer, you see, are so similar that it’s difficult to tell them apart. As much as Trudeau might like people to believe that, it would be tough to find two Conservative politicians more different than Scheer and Ford. Even during an election campaign, when truth typically takes a holiday, the Scheer-is-just-like-Ford argument is laughably off base. It has novelty value, though.
