Ontario court case reminds us what an idiot Doug Ford really is

Well, it's taken a long time, but finally the Ontario Supreme Court has ruled that it was unconstitutional and illegal for Doug Ford's Conservative government to force gas stations to display stickers claiming, "Federal carbon tax will cost you". I wrote about this in some detail at the time (a year-and-a-half ago!)
The court called the stickers "misleading", "a partisan argument", " not very truthful" and "unconstitutional".
It comes as a timely reminder that Doug Ford is, and will remain, an idiot, just in case his (impassioned and empathetic, but ineffectual) leadership during the pandemic has led you to think more sympathetically towards him.
