Doug Ford's caucus crackdown shows his hypocrisy on democracy - 2020-07-24
Bad enough that Doug Ford has become so addicted to emergency powers under cover of COVID-19. Now our all-powerful premier brooks no criticism from within.
This is double dictatorial jeopardy.
Ford's rapid-fire firing of PC backbencher Belinda Karahalios, who dared to vote against her own party this week, does more than deprive a majority government of internal feedback. It also sends a chilling public signal to his cowed caucus that they'd best think twice before holding any impure thoughts.
