Doug Ford won't answer your calls anymore. He won't even answer questions in the legislature - 2019-12-16
Unlike any premier before him, Ford has taken to not taking questions in the legislature posed by the Official Opposition. Most days, he provides answers only to a higher authority, the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario — whose obedient backbench MPPs ask of him but also answer to him.
Which means that Ford is now accountable only to himself.
It didn't used to be this way. It is a cornerstone of parliamentary democracy in Ontario that the leader of Her Majesty's government faces off against the leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition for the daily question period.
