I don’t usually write about politics, but this is one exception.
After Doug Ford’s victory in the Ontario provincial election yesterday, I’m just going to reassure you all who might be worried, upset or angry about the result:
I still love Canada.
Ontario is only one province out of ten, plus three territories. Doug Ford voters do not represent the whole of Ontario or the whole of Canada, just like how Cheeto Man voters do not represent the whole of America, or Brexit voters do not represent the whole of Britain.
Ontarians and Canadians (and pretty much everybody else) have survived pretty dark political times in the past, and they will survive Ford. Love for a country shouldn’t be diminished by its politics or by its people.
