Because what better metaphor exists for the state of this province and its beleaguered leader — a master of empty promises — than a store full of empty beer shelves?

It bears repeating that Doug Ford, the Premier of Ontario, talks a lot about booze and his mission to make it cheaper and more accessible. His official platform may as well read:

"Who needs progressive sex education when you can get a beer for a buck? Who needs crucial health services when you can douse your friends in ale at your very own state-approved tailgate party? Who needs school repairs and library services when you've got beer at the corner store?"
