Doug Ford's Video Of Lecturing Kids On Phones Is Getting Compared To The Trailer Park Boys

  Doug Ford's Video Of Lecturing Kids On Phones Is Getting Compared To The Trailer Park Boys Ford drew a comparison to everyone's favorite high school dropout.Doug Ford recently took to Twitter to share a clip of himself lecturing some students on the importance of keeping their phones out of the classroom. So, how did he film this video? Did he stand at a podium in a gymnasium and lecture these kids on the importance of phone restrictions? No, instead the Ontario leader grabbed a hockey net and filmed the whole thing on the go.

Students were there to demonstrate against the Ford government’ s changes to post-secondary education. TORONTO — Student protesters were thrown out of Ontario' s legislature Tuesday morning after unfurling a banner to demand free tuition and hurling insults at Premier Doug Ford .

City Councillor Doug Ford says he will end the "gravy train" at Queen ' s Park telling a Toronto radio station Wednesday morning that he will run for the Progressive Conservatives “I will guarantee it and we will defeat you and we will make sure the fiscal ship of this province is going in the right direction.”

After a nearly five-month-long hiatus, MPP’s will once again sit in Ontario’s legislative chamber at Queen’s Park. According to CBC, Doug Ford and his government are set to begin tackling a long to-do list that will include everything from the Autism program changes to Ontario Place. It has been a whirlwind first year in office for Ford, who faced widespread backlash over his changes to the province’s educational system, amongst other pressing issues. However, Queen's Park protesters have already started to gather outside of the building.

Protestors have already begun assembling outside of Queen’s Park to greet Ford on Monday morning. Breakfast Television’s Tammie Sutherland reported that police began gathering at Queen's Park ahead of the planned protests, which started at 7:00 a.m. Numerous labour groups are scheduled to demonstrate as MPPs return to the legislature today.

Ford government cuts funding to school councils

  Ford government cuts funding to school councils A provincial grant program intended to help get parents involved in schools is being cut considerably, leaving local school councils facing a substantial funding shortage. The Parents Reaching Out (PRO) grant is a provincial program that provides money to councils for small events designed to get parents engaged in the community. It had a cap of $1,000 per council per year. Last fall, the provincial government announced the grants were being paused and reviewed. Ministry officials recently told CBC the budget for the grants will be reduced to $1.25 million, roughly half the amount handed out in previous years.

Today at Queen ' s Park , Premier Doug Ford spoke about tuition changes and education. Student protestors in the gallery began chanting over him and attempting to bring attention to the cuts. Students march to Queen ’ s Park to protest against Ford ’s OSAP cuts. #CJRL715 #ONpoli #OSAP

A band of protesters was spotted marching around the park with a giant sculpture of Doug Ford and “a banker.” The musicians could be heard playing an instrumental version of Cee-Lo’s hit song “F*** You” as they danced around the exterior of the park, which is under construction at the moment.

Other demonstrators decided to dress up in 50’s-inspired outfits, suggesting that education and childcare changes have sent Ontario back to the 1950s.

This isn’t the first time that Ford has faced protests in Queen’s park. A group of activists caused controversy back in May after bringing a disturbing set of props with them.

Hammer and sickle flags, signs that called for the head of Doug Ford and a homemade guillotine coated in fake blood, were all spotted during a “general protest” of the premier.

According to The Toronto Sun, the first bill expected to be addressed at Queen’s Park today will be introduced by Associate Small Business Minister Prabmeet Sarkaria.

The bluntly titled, Better for People, Smarter for Business Act 2019, is a wide-ranging legislation that focuses on eliminating what Ford’s government views as needless duplication and out-of-date regulations.

“Reducing Ontario’s regulatory burden is an important part of our government’s plan because getting this right matters to families, businesses, and Ontario’s bottom line,” Sarkaria stated in a ‘Message from the Minister.’
