6 Times Premier Doug Ford Was Totally Phenomenal During COVID-19

Since the start of the pandemic the Ontario Premier Doug Ford has seen his numbers rise and fall. Fortunately for him though his poll numbers are still over 50% and he is actually still up 24% from the start. This has mostly to do with his competence in what he has done, especially in the beginning, with regards to the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic.

Doug Ford has had flashes of brilliance over the past number of months. The joly Ontario Premier has brought together a number of former political foes to work as a team and get stuff done. It wasn’t to long ago Doug Ford was one of the only Premiers in the confederate out there hustling and making deals to get PPE and other medical supplies delivered to Ontario front line and essential workers.

It has been a long 9 months though and the constant criticism from his political adversaries might be taking its toll. However, day by day we see a number of decisions being made that most Ontario residents certainly feel comfortable with him making. Could you imagine the members opposite and there chicken little sky is falling approach in a time like this?

Now that the vaccine is on its way and the light at the end of the tunnel is lit, we feel it may be time to point out some of Premier Doug Ford’s unlikely accomplishments. Given the Ontario response seemed heavy handed at times it was really only certain areas of the province that have been hit extremely hard.
