  1. Only in “Ford Nation” will a young man who has not even attended a public school be appointed to the post of Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Education. Wow!
    I’m not surprised.
    How many other unqualified people are in positions of influence in this new cabinet?
    I guess his very right wing and evangelical leanings will be evident in the “new curriculum” in Ontario. Has Doug Ford even polled anyone except the far right?
