WATCH: Doug Ford’s Speech At Ford Fest

Ford rips “media party” and “downtown insiders.”

Doug Ford slammed the establishment media and the “downtown elites” at his recent Ford Fest speech.

As I’ve written before, Ford remains more popular than other politicians like Justin Trudeau, yet the establishment press acts as if Ford is somehow the least popular person in the country.

With much of the media against him, Ford had the chance to speak to a friendly crowd of committed Ford Nation supporters, addressing real Ontarians without the media filter.

“We know that when they come at us, you are with us and that is all that matters,” said Ford. “Not the downtown insiders, not the media who criticizes us at every single step, I call them the media party.”

“You are the only ones who matter to us, you are the only ones who we answer to and that is the people of Ontario.”

With job growth surging in Ontario due to Ford’s pro-jobs agenda (even with the headwinds of Trudeau’s failing economic policies), Ford discussed his economic success:

“We have 190,000 more jobs today than we did one year ago. That’s 190,000 new paycheques, 190,000 new opportunities. We have so many new jobs in Ontario that businesses are having a hard time filling them right now.”
