The Ford PCs and the NDP continue sniping at each other over New Democrat Sarah Jama's controversial tweet and non-apology-apology re/; the state of affairs in Israel and Gaza.

Half of the NDP caucus walked out of the assembly on Thursday, while the house voted on a Tory motion condemning the slaughtering of Israelis by Hamas and endorsing that country’s right to self-defence. The remaining New Democrats abstained from the vote saying it should have included a call for the feds to “advocate for the immediate release of all hostages, the protection of civilians in accordance with international law and end to the siege and bombardment of this issue”

Meanwhile, Jama's prepared to sick her lawyer on Premier Doug Ford who took to Twitter and, among other things, accused Jama of supporting the "rape and murder of innocent Jewish people."

Meanwhile, new polling shows the PCs have bounced up following the premier's decision to reverse the Greenbelt swap.
