CFP: Yo, President Donald Trump and team, notice the similarities between what happened in the Province of Ontario last night and what happened to you on November 8, 2016?
Against incredible odds studiously stacked against him, populist Doug Ford became the new leader of the newly resurrected Ontario Progressive Conservative Party on March 11, 2018.
In a final vote count—known by 3 p.m. yesterday—but kept under wraps until late into evening hours—Ford was finally declared the winner.
“Following a long, drawn out process to count then review the more than 64,000 electronic ballots cast by party members, Ford narrowly edged out former MPP Christine Elliott, party officials said.” (Toronto Sun)
Even as the rousing cheers were being sent up, Ford was already being described by the left-leaning Toronto Star, Canada’s largest newspaper as a former Toronto city councillor and brother of late mayor Rob Ford, whose career was derailed by a crack-smoking scandal.
(The Star edited out the “crack-smoking” bit in today’s story, but CFP found the screen shot:) MORE HERE
