Trudeau hardly mentions Scheer but referred to Ontario Premier Doug Ford 15 times in his pharmacare announcement on Monday. He suggests Scheer will do to Canada, what Ford has done to Ontario — that is, make massive cuts to public services.

Scheer has fought back in lacklustre fashion by conjuring up the nightmare of Liberal governments past, specifically those of Kathleen Wynne and Dalton McGuinty in Ontario.

But he is wide open to the charge that he will slash-and-burn services because every day he makes new spending promises, while saying he will return the budget to balance within five years.
