Trudeau and Ford's death embrace is a sign of political posturing to come - 2019-06-21
That was a bizarre, vast, cabinet shuffle at Queen's Park this week, since the only genuine problem was the unshuffled premier. How so?
Well, Monday's City Hall Raptors party became the de facto Liberal launch for October's federal election. It didn't start that way; it happened when Doug was booed and Justin, cheered. Justin will now go full DoFo till the vote. It's his best, maybe only, hope.
It probably shouldn't have happened. Doug, man of the people, champ of The Little Guy -- at a Raptors celebration? Those were his "folks." But Justin has horseshoes. It's like that boxing match he shouldn't have agreed to yet won. He may've been ready for boos too -- but they never came.
