    This is blatant corruption/cronyism and something needs to be done about it. The lack of accountability is damaging to democracy and the rule of law.

      People knew about this when they elected another Ford. This is just another example of you get what you vote for.

        They like him because he says what they think.

        Of course, they are drooling idiots.

      There’s only lack of accountability if you don’t do anything about it. You are the boss, after all. Nobody else is going to do it. The Premier and MPPs are just employees, and employees not acting appropriately is not a worker problem, it is a management problem.

      What corrective steps are you taking to become a better manager?

        I certainly didn’t vote for him knowing this is exactly what he’s like and have written my MP but am ignored because they are right in line with Ford. Not much else I feel like I can do, turnout was abysmal. Completely agree with your sentiment.

          Well, of course not. The Premiership position is not hired for by the boss. It is decided upon by the other employees. Which is to be expected, it’s just a third rank position. Do you think the top brass in any other organization hand pick every last employee? Of course not.

          Not much else I feel like I can do

          No doubt. Hence why nobody likes being the boss. Why do you think CEOs of any other large organization make millions? Nobody would go near the job for any less for exactly this kind of reason. Employees are assholes who will try to screw you over the minute you stop looking.

      I have not had any faith in the primacy of the rule of law in Canada since the Toronto G20 in June 2010. I mourn yet another fucking year of not a damn thing being done to repair the damage that was done to all of us and the relationship between state and citizen, let alone bringing consequences to the responsible parties, who all got what they wanted out of it.
