Ed the Sock dips toe into Ontario Autism Program debate with parody of PC social media campaign - 2019-06-18
Steven Kerzner, known by most Canadians for his character Ed the Sock, is using social media to target the provincial government's changes to the Ontario Autism Program.
On Sunday, Kerzner posted a photo of Ed the Sock on Twitter showing the puppet at a local convenience store with a caption that read, in part: "Stopped by my local convenience store. There weren't any people there jonesing for beer, which is surprising cuz @fordnation @OntarioPCParty is wasting $1 billion to get beer in corner stores but won't help #autism families w/ needed funding."
The tweet mocks dozens of social media posts by PC MPPs, who shared pictures of themselves last month at local stores to promote the government's plans to increase access to beer and wine.
