The famous physicist Sir Issac Newton's first law of motion states that objects in motion will continue in motion at the same speed and direction, unless some external force is applied to change their trajectory. The same principle is often true of government policies as well. These continue in the direction in which they were initially set, until there is a specific intervention to change them.

There are few places in recent memory where this principle is truer than Ontario under Doug Ford, whose campaign slogan was "For the People."

Despite the chaos of the past few months, featuring a major cabinet shuffle that included the dumping of Finance Minister Vic Fedeli, the demise of the premier's controversial chief of staff Dean French and statements that Ford's administration is now "a government that listens," remarkably little has actually changed.
