Welcome back, Fuck Face. After hiding like he had scabies for 3 months, Ontario Premier emerged from hiding to insult migrant workers and immigrants to Ontario, painting them all as lazy immigrants who come here for ‘the dole’ (public money).

Source: Ontario Premier Doug Ford is declining to apologize for his comments about immigrants, with the health minister backing the provincial leader, saying Ford was misunderstood.
Speaking about a worker shortage in the trades on Monday, Ford said, “We need people, we’re in such desperate need for people from around the world,” adding that the province is short “a couple 100,000 workers” and needs immigrants to fill the gap.
“I just have one criteria – you come here like every other new Canadian has come here, you work your tail off,” he said in Tecumseh, Ontario. “If you think you’re coming to collect the dole and sit around – not going to happen. Go somewhere else. You want to work, come here.”
Ford added that he will be speaking to the Prime Minister about the labour shortage and said he will “aggressively” work with the federal government to “get more people to call Ontario home.”
It has sparked an enormous outcry, with opposition leaders calling the comments demeaning. Christine Elliott was asked about Ford’s comments at a press conference in Toronto.
“What Premier Ford was saying is that we need more people to do the jobs that we have available here in Ontario, and so we encourage more immigration,” she said. “We know that when people come here, they do work hard.”
Elliott went on to say that an apology from Ford is not necessary.
So, Health Minister Christine Elliot is racist, too. Got it.
Who’s up for some stats and facts?
Fact: 90% of people in Canada on ‘The Dole’ are white, generational Canadians who are struggling to make ends meet or who ‘gave up.’
The unemployment rate in Canada among immigrants and migrant workers is well below that of Canadian citizens. less than half. That’s why migrant workers come here Doug, you dumb racist fuck.
This is Doug Ford attempting the old ‘Build that Wall’ bullshit meant to appease his equally stupid and racist neo-con voters.
He won’t apologize because he doesn’t give a single shit about the greater good. Only his own skin, political self-interest, and a little light racism can go a long way with card-carrying conservatives.
Doug Ford doesn’t have any values other than self-preservation. He’s a terrible person and voting for a terrible person means you are too.
Every shit post we get supporting Fordsie comes from terrible people who want Doug to preserve their racist, entitled way of life. Every Ford supporter is just as hateful and dumb as he is.
Ask yourself if you’re tired of wondering “what’s in it for Doug every time he makes an appearance or some fugazi announcement.
It’s easier to see through his duplicitous bullshit that way.
