With recent changes to laws in Ontario, highschool students across the province are now dealing with the new cellphone ban in classrooms. Whether or not the measure will prove effective remains to be seen, but Doug Ford's certainly getting some heat online. "OK, boomer" has been trending all over the U.S and is now being used in Canada, particularly towards Ford and his ban.

If you're unfamiliar with the slang term "OK, boomer," allow us to explain. Boomers are, of course, people born during the "baby boom" era, generally defined in the U.S. as between 1946 and 1965.

The phrase "ok, boomer" is increasingly used by younger generations, particularly millennials and Gen Z, to highlight a supposedly out-of-touch view held by boomers.
