Tonight, we gather to honour the Doug Ford Government a year into their historic mandate. Our hosts hand out the much-coveted Douggie Awards to those who have shown tremendous achievements in spin, bootlicking and dramatically miming the hunt for beer in convenience stores. Join us for this unforgettable evening.   This episode is sponsored by Penguin Random House Canada. 
In the month since the budget was released, we've gotten a lot more details about the Ford Government’s cuts. The environment is one area that's been hit hard, with plans to murder some baby trees, make it easier to kill endangered species', and fight the carbon tax with the most powerful tool on earth: stickers.   We enter the world of commercial talk radio to see what some of Ford’s biggest cheerleaders think about this.   And we find a glimmer of hope.
The Ford Government's first budget is out. They call it "Protecting What Matters Most." We spend eight hours locked in a room with bureaucrats, reporters and cheap pizza to find out what exactly does matter most to Doug, once you put a dollar sign on it.
Plus, the one he fulfilled that blew up in his face.

Is the Ford Government trying to privatize healthcare? Plus, a list of things Doug Ford has broken.   Further reading: "The Secret Moves To Privatize Healthcare" in The Toronto Star
An old friend of the Ford family has been appointed to head the Ontario Provincial Police, a job many consider him to be under-qualified for. We look back to Doug's history with Ron Taverner, as well as the group of unofficial advisors who surrounded the Fords for years.   Plus, we introduce a new segment called... wait for it... "For the People."  
Ep.4 - Live From Ford Fest!

Ep.4 - Live From Ford Fest!

We visit Ford Fest, where people wait for burgers and juice boxes in the dark as a white supremacist takes a selfie with the premier.
Doug Ford won't let some silly Charter get in his way! Just two and a half months in, he's poised to use a rare and extreme measure to win a petty legal battle.
Two months in, the Ford government just lost their first lawsuit. What makes it even more humiliating is they lost to Elon Musk.   There are many other legal battles in the works.
It's only been a month.   Queen's Park Today publisher Allison Smith follows every move Doug Ford makes. CANADALAND news editor Jonathan Goldsbie covered him for years as a City Hall reporter. They're here to make sense of the chaos of the new Ford era.   We will keep making this podcast if you want to hear it. So if you want episode 2, tell us! And tell other people to listen.

podcast is boring. going back to JRE. no offence. just seems one sided which doesn't really force me to think about other perspectives.
