Ontario Premier Doug Ford wishes Ontarians a happy Thanksgiving
Toronto — “Today, people across Ontario will come together to celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s a time to be thankful for the many good things in each of our own lives.
We all have our different traditions, whether it’s carving a turkey, volunteering at the local soup kitchen, or giving thanks before sharing a meal with loved ones.
On this day, I also want to recognize and give thanks for the work of our first responders and our Canadian service members. They go above and beyond every day to keep us safe and healthy.
From my family to yours, wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving.” – Ontario Premier Doug Ford

A Thanksgiving Footnote from Niagara At Large –
In this photo, circulated in social media before the 2018 provincial elections, here is then-Ontario Conservative Party leader Doug Ford posing with this then Niagara Centre Riding candidate April Jeffs
And if we don’t have enough to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season, consider the following.
We now have April Jeffs , a former Wainfleet mayor and a former member of the board of directors of the Niaagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) under the management of past NPCA administrators, including Carmen D’Angelo and David Barrick, and Doug Ford’s former Niagara Centre Riding candidate in the 2018 Ontario election, running as the Conservative/Andrew Scheer candidate in the Niagara Centre Riding in this federal election.
Is the turkey ready yet?
