It's time for Doug Ford to ditch Ontario News Now - 2019-08-01
I have probably drunk Pelee Island wine at some point in my life, but I couldn't call it memorable. That's not meant to be a knock against the winery that's been embroiled in a bit of a political bunfight this week; it's just that my ability to distinguish between wines begins at "red or white" and ends at "bottled or boxed." I might be a philistine of the vine, but, on the plus side, nothing I did this week had people howling for a boycott of my work.
The same can't be said for Pelee Island Winery, whose president, Walter Schmoranz, appeared in a video distributed by the Progressive Conservative party's social-media operation Ontario News Now. Schmoranz also happens to have donated $2,050 to the Tories this year.
The video immediately caused two problems, one for Schmoranz and one for the Tories.
