What happens in the Greenbelt is going to stay in the Greenbelt. Vegas? Not so much!

On The Ledge

29-09-2023 • 39 mins

The Ontario Legislature is back in session, so it's time to reconvene On the Ledge, your Ontario politics podcast!

Today,

There's the Greenbelt. Then there's the Greenbelt. And, oh ya, the Greenbelt.

Ford Nation might have wished it was a mere typo, but no! It seems the premier's team has messsaging issues and massaging issues - all laid bare this week as the Legislature got back to business at Queen's Park.

John Wright, Sabrina Nanji, Keith Leslie and Dave Trafford agree this might be one of the worst quarters a government has suffered at Queen's Park in recent memory. All all agree, "This ain't over yet."

The Greenbelt land swap has turned into the political version of a Haggersville Tire Dump Fire.

Questions:
  1. What would be worse for Doug Ford? An RCMP investigation or a public inquiry?
  2. Does Doug Ford have the political stamina to deal with the Greenbelt fallout until 2026?
  3. Does the PC caucus have the premier's back?
  4. Has the Ford housing initiative gone up in smoke?
