Canada Day 2019
This year, in Ontario, Canada Day will be a bit strange. Doug Ford has announced that the celebrations at Queens Park have been cancelled -- to save money. The suspicion is that he cancelled the event because his presence there would be greeted by a chorus of cascading boos. He's been running into a lot of them these days.
The Liberals -- who don't possess official party status -- have announced that the celebrations will go on. They will pick up the tab.
It's a reminder of the political landscape these days. Wherever you are in this country, enjoy the day. Despite the presence of politicians like Mr. Ford, we have a lot to celebrate.
