Doug Ford is taking motorists for a ride with gas pump stickers - 2019-08-17
Of all the buffoonery wrought by Doug Ford since winning power last year, one blunder sticks out for sheer boneheaded obstinacy.
This month, the premier is forcing gas stations to affix a sticker onto all 25,000 fuel pumps in the province as part of his puerile propaganda war against a federal carbon levy. Never mind that this compelled speech offends free speech, or that it demonstrably distorts the truth and misstates reality.
Our Progressive Conservative premier — whose party has always stressed individual rights and freedoms — says it must be said. On pain of a $10,000 penalty, per day, for failing to do as told.
