Essex MPP scoffs at 'bizarre' insults from Premier Doug Ford - 2019-03-21
"He walks around as a tough guy, but he's nothing but a coward," said Premier Doug Ford, and then repeated his last phrase for emphasis. "He is nothing but a coward."
The leader of Ontario's PC government directed the insult at Essex MPP Taras Natyshak in front of the legislative assembly on Tuesday — the capper of a rant by Ford in which he scornfully, repeatedly called Natyshak a "tough guy" and challenged Natyshak to step outside.
"He thinks he's a big tough guy, but why doesn't the big tough guy walk outside and make those accusations outside the door if he's so tough?" Ford said.
