Do Whatever You Want While The Rest of Us Sacrifice!

A Brief Foreword by Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper –
So now we find out that Rod Phillips – this creep of an Ontario Finance Minister we have, courtesy of his moronic boss, the premier, Doug Ford – having tabled a hellish budget which, among other things, guts our province’s Conservation Authorities and further compromised the health of our environment for our children, sneaks off on a vacation to the Caribbean Islands during a province-wide lockdown where the rest of us sacrifice and suffer!
Sorry I am in so off a mood during this Holiday Season, but God damn these two-faced Doug Ford bastards!
It’s just fine with them to tell the rest of us to stay home and stare at “we are closed signs” at virtually every restaurant, store and public institution for at least the next four weeks. But hey, if they want to climb aboard a jet and sneak off on an –out-of-country vacation to warmer climates during an Ontario-wide walk down, that is just dandy.
Until or unless of course, they get caught in the media doing it, then our populist premier, Ford, turns around and says how “extremely unacceptable” the sneak-away trip is.
You will be hearing this from me many more times as we move closer to a 2022 Ontario election – these morally bankrupt creeps in this Ford government, so awful for our environment, for addressing climate change and for genially caring about the common good of Ontario people, have got to go!
Now here is the News Release from Ontario’s NDP Official Opposition Party on this latest incident of Ford government hypocrisy –
Ford Needs To Have Consequences for Jet-Set Finance Minister Rod Phillips – NDP
Ontario NDP Deputy Leader Sara Singh says Doug Ford cannot give Finance Minister Rod Phillips a free pass for his choice to leave the country for a vacation in December, while instructing everyone else to stay inside their home.
“Doug Ford let (Niagara West MPP) Sam Oosterhoff off the hook when he held a big family shindig. Ford let himself off the hook for gathering with family when he told the rest of us we can’t. These guys just think the rules don’t apply to them,” said Singh.
“Everyday folks were separated from their aging parents during the holidays. They’ve missed the birthdays and graduations of people who are precious to them, and they have been separated from nieces, nephews and grandbabies as they’ve grown and hit new milestones over the last year. While the rest of us ache to hug our loved ones again, Doug Ford insiders are whooping it up, even vacationing in the tropics.”
Phillips claims in a statement to have left soon after Dec. 8, when Ford adjourned the legislature. On Dec. 11 he tweeted about his visits “today” to local businesses. On Dec. 15 he attended a funding announcement in Durham.
On Dec. 18 Phillips tweeted photos of himself visiting a local business, which he says were taken the previous weekend. On Christmas Eve he tweeted that “we all make sacrifices this #Christmas. According to multiple media reports, Phillips is still outside the country.
