At Rally, Doug Ford Says “We Believe In Empowering The People, Not The Government”

Ford criticizes Kathleen Wynne for believing “that the people work for the government,” saying “We have a different philosophy. We have a philosophy of the government works for the people.”

During a recent Rally for a Better Ontario, Doug Ford shared his vision of the contrast between the Ontario Liberals lead by Kathleen Wynne, and the PC Party.

Ford said the “Liberals are on life-support,” and pointed out that Wynne’s recent spending-spree budget seemed like an episode of the Oprah Winfrey show, saying he was waiting for Wynne to say “you get a free car, you get a free car, you get a free car.”

Addressing the crowd, Ford then noted that “Kathleen Wynne, make no mistake about it, truly believes that she’s smarter than each and every one of you. She truly believes that the people work for the government.”

Ford then said, “We have a different philosophy, we have a philosophy of the government works for the people. We believe in empowering the people, not the government.”

Watch Ford’s remarks in the video below:

The people taking back power from the elites

Ford effectively exposed the elitist mindset behind Kathleen Wynne’s policies. Wynne doesn’t trust the people, she only trusts herself and her small circle of political advisers. She hides her elitism and distrust of the people behind slogans about ‘caring,’ but all she has left behind in government is a mountain of debt, and a rising cost of living that is crushing working class and middle class Ontarians, while pushing businesses out of the province.

That’s why it’s refreshing to see someone in politics who is actually willing to call out the fake rhetoric of the elites, and put trust in those who are supposed to actually in power: The people.

If he can ‘keep his feet out of the water,’ so to speak, we shall see — and only time will tell the tale.

People are claimed by the government through the birth certificate. Two dates on it. The flesh and the date of Regis (queen ) tration. Name in capital letters is theirs and a legal fiction. If you do not reclaim your self in seven years you are declared legally dead. Cestui que vie trust act 1666. Modern slavery.

For you Spencer, read this:
Jaspal Atwal row: Meeting of Indian, Canadian foreign ministers called off, reports @anirudhb (link: http://read.ht/Bkaq) read.ht/Bkaq

What Atwal said about the trudeau gov is not good that’s why you need to be read.

Certainly agree with the sentiment. The NDP and Liberals claim to be for the people, but having more people dependent on the government is not a long term viable solution which is what the NDP and Liberals are doing. The best solution is to remove the barriers so people can succeed, while ensure there is a social safety net available for those who get left behind.

Go Rob, the sooner your in the sooner we can, thank you, you are the light at the end of the Lieberal dark tunnels we live in. Then we need our foreign federal traitorous government gone and maybe we can get Canada back.

note: the Fords should have sued Trudeau for slander for his ‘misogyny’ comment.

Miles Lunn

I think the debate comes down to what benefits people most. Conservatives believe individuals are best able to make decisions and the state should do the minimum for an economy to function and help those who fall through the cracks, but not be overbearing as that restricts one’s ability to succeed. The left by contrast thinks government is the best to look after people which is in the long term a bad thing. Greater dependence on the government ultimately harms things long run and also inhibits economic growth. More than anything government has a bad record of helping most so… Read more »

Yes well stated!

Trudeau , Horgan, Notely, Wynne, are firmly committed far left socialists. They want to bring about a socialist dream of having the government become the source for everything you need by forcing you to become dependent upon it. How are they doing this, simply by deliberately borrowing to the extreme financially, and increasing the debt for no other purpose than to increase the level of taxes you pay, thus placing an extreme financial burden upon businesses and creating more unemployment and ultimately more poor people. That is the first step in their plan. Next comes with crushing the capitalist system… Read more »
