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.

    Pit I’ll Ford is a very prejudice dog. There’s no way he’ll be re-elected. Enough is enough!☹️ He supported Trumping the past, and mentioned how much he admired that hateful monster. There’s no difference between him and Trump. ☹️

      That’s kind of funny what a joke you show me where he turned around and said he supported trump.
      What I can tell you is Justin Trudeau said publicly Admires the Chinese dine ease and the way they do democracy.
      There is a joke democracy in a Communist country.
      He said nothing wrong Doug Ford did when my parents came from Guyana they came here and they worked hard and I expect that from any other person coming to Canada to work hard why should I work hard and labor for someone else that doesn’t want to.
      It’s no different if you probably went to any other country that country would ask you to work hard too.
      Benefits like social services are supposed to be a temporary format.

    Pit bull Ford’s days are numbered. Immigrants made him wealthy. He’s a wicked, prejudice monster. There’s no way he’ll be re-elected. He always admired the big head, prejudice fool Trump. He messed up the health care system, education and other issues. That’s what happens when you put a dunderhead in power.

      He’ll get back in he may not hold a majority government but he’ll get back in too many people in LA LA land don’t get off the couch and vote and most people in Ontario are getting sick of tired of supporting people that can’t be bothered to work.
      That’s what I dug forward got in to begin with because all the lazy people that are on social services don’t bother getting out and voting out and voting and cut the wrong throat doing so.
      The people that work whether it’s low class or middle class were all tired of supporting those that don’t wanna work.

    I’m happy to see someone come out and call a spade a spade.
    The truth is if you don’t want to come and work and making honest living they don’t come.
    The premiere of Ontario wasn’t being racist or insensitive to anyone he was speaking the truth This is a province of many cultures faiths faith and we all get along perfectly fine if everyone does their due diligence things are things are going to be great but if you come here to be lazy and expect to sponge off other people don’t bother coming playing truth fact.
    Problems with people today is they have become lazy not like our parents who have worked so hard to make Ontario a great place coming from other countries.

    “He messed up the health care system”??????
    LIBERAL MESS!!! Ontario still has not recovered
    A scathing report on the eHealth Ontario spending scandal charges that successive governments wasted $1 billion in taxpayer money.
    Ontario Auditor General Jim McCarter released his investigation into the eHealth agency on Wednesday morning.

    Stop blaming Ford, almost two million undocumented in Canada, most in Ontario, quite a few in hotels, guess who picks up the tab? We all do, reluctantly.
    He is far from perfect, but when Liberals know they are going to be unemployed, they scorched earth,(see America) he is still cleaning up.
    Please stop with TRUMP TRUMP

    Is this the politician who told single mothers on welfare that the best social assistance is a job?
