I’m sure the premier’s comment was meant to garner approval and votes in a speech he recently made before a Rural Ontario Municipal (ROMA) conference. DOUG FORD compared residents of TORONTO “the bubble”, with Ontario’s “real people” in other parts of the province.
TORONTO is indeed ‘the bubble’ for Ontario and – for that matter, the country itself. It’s the financial centre, economic engine, largest city, transit hub, technology centre, a multicultural nirvana, top television & movie-making production centre, with a few million taxpaying residents, four daily newspapers, two airports, four universities, five concert halls, pro hockey, baseball and basketball teams, two opera companies, at least five major hospitals, Canada’s largest zoo, second largest art gallery . . . and a premier who seems to wish he was mayor.
“Ford lives in the “bubble”, his daughter sells cannabis oil in the “bubble”, almost 3 million of us live in the “bubble”. There is only one person I wish didn’t live in this “bubble” with me and that’s Doug Ford!” – HEATHER CORRIVEAU, retired art teacher
<Our TORONTO is not called The Big Smoke for nothing.>
