WOW!!! What a week!
Doug Ford blinked before the entire province this week by capitulating to CUPE and revoking Bill 28. This happened as a result of the mobilization and solidarity of the labour movement in Ontario, the likes of which haven’t really been seen in a few generations.
While that might sound like a reason to celebrate (it is), Doug Ford and his team haven’t wasted any time to back track on previous promises that they’ve made to voters. Namely to keep the Greenbelt intact.
A roundup of news from around the 905 with Joel and Roland, including the province’s surprise announcement that it’s considering an expansion to the Greenbelt. Hamilton Council decides to spend $20,000+ on a cause it admits is lost. Meanwhile a councillor reminds us that we’re all lazy and can’t be trusted.
