When five consecutive public opinion polls show your popularity fizzling faster than buck-a-beer, it's time to cut your losses from all those budget cuts. Now, Doug Ford wants Ontarians to drown their tears in few beers, by tearing up a Beer Store contract.

The premier raised the white flag Monday morning by reversing his controversial cutbacks to municipal health and child-care services — for now. If all goes according to plan, the storm of protests against his Progressive Conservatives will subside. Hours later, Ford raised the red flag by ripping up a signed contract with the province's biggest brewers — details to come. If all goes according to strategy, Ontarians will rally behind his populist attack against the Beer Store. All in a day's work: Reverse cuts; rip up contracts; repeat.
