While Premier Doug Ford is off to a good start governing Ontario, his biggest challenges are ahead.
Among the accomplishments of his Progressive Conservative government in its first 100 days:
Scrapping former premier Kathleen Wynne’s cap-and-trade carbon pricing scheme that was taking almost $2 billion annually out of the pockets of Ontarians.
Restoring local planning rights to municipalities by killing the dictatorial aspects of the Liberals’ Green Energy Act, which forced industrial wind factories onto unwilling communities across Ontario.
Cancelling 758 expensive, unreliable and unneeded early-stage green energy projects approved by the Liberals.
Plus, replacing the Hydro One board, downsizing Toronto council, killing Drive Clean, ending one of the longest university strikes in Canadian history at York and reviewing Wynne’s controversial sex-ed program.
But the biggest challenge, correcting the financial damage of 15 years of tax-and-spend Liberal rule, which turned their government into one of the world’s most indebted, non-national borrowers, looms ahead.
It won’t be easy.
