Will Justin Trudeau's attack on Doug Ford work in Ontario? - 2019-08-13
But in the weird world of Canadian politics, it was portrayed as a masterful attempt by Trudeau to link his chief rival, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, with the highly unpopular Ford.
"Yet another conservative government — the government of Doug Ford — is walking away from services to the most vulnerable," Trudeau intoned sadly. "Conservative politicians like to say they're for the people. But then they end up cutting services for the most vulnerable. It's what they do."
Left unsaid was Trudeau's real message: If you don't like Ford, you'll hate Scheer.
