Rob Ford offers the provincial NDP advice: bring down the government

Rob Ford offers the provincial NDP advice: bring down the government

The troubled relationship between Rob Ford and premier Kathleen Wynne took another southward turn yesterday when the mayor urged the NDP party to bring down the Liberal government. Wynne’s Liberals tabled a $127.6-billion budget on Thursday that the Progressive Conservatives have already vowed to vote against. During his weekly radio show on Sunday, Ford called on the NDP to do the same and trigger a provincial election. “The leader of the NDP party, Andrea Horwath, should just say no,” he advised, explaining that the Liberal gas plant scandal has the public clamouring for an election. Funny how Ford’s latte-sipping, bicycle-riding, gravy-train-riding vitriol conveniently disappeared the second he wanted something from the NDP. [Globe and Mail]
