Doug Ford is a long distance admirer of Boris Johnson. It's easy to see why.

Both are bombastic municipal politicians who climbed the greasy flagpole to the top, rising to become first ministers for Her Majesty ⸺ one as premier of Ontario, the other prime minister of Great Britain. Blond ambition incarnate.

Now, both have achieved a more dubious distinction: Almost simultaneously, they are being second guessed by their judiciaries for giving the Queen flawed advice about the fundamentals of democracy.
