    Doesnt this impact insurance buyers too tho?

    As I understand it premiums and coverage in Ontario are adjusted with insurance taking public coverage into account and working in extension off of this.

    So even if already always buying premiums should go higher as private plans for Ontario now need to cover this portion they excluded from calculations


    And here is where you see the Conservative propensity to award sweetheart private takeovers of public areas of benefit for Canadians - sold to us as savings but mostly we pay for it in the market with higher prices. And it's a nice parasitical, codified relationship for the big donors being rewarded


    Locked in customer base and higher profits

    Have you ever bought travel Insurance before? It's literally peanuts. 5 percent of peanuts is still peanuts.

    Travel insurance industry with Ontario market access: Nice work if you can get it!!

    Sweet plums to be had by all donors in good standing

    And yes I believe I've bought it at least a few times. No biggie.

    Medical, cancellation and interruption insurance are pennies on the dollar, if you travel. Some folks don’t get that and the horror stories are bountiful.

    I’ve had to use the interruption and cancellation benefits more than once.

    I guess you have to find yourself in a sticky situation, in a foreign country, to really appreciate what the coverage means.

    I would have been fucked without it, on a couple of occasions.

    "surplus funding" is the new Ford'ism du jour

    Ontario’s 2019 budget actually cites a Mowat Centre report in a section discussing manufacturing job losses in Southwestern Ontario. But it is cutting the centre's funding, they said Monday:
    Ford cuts to drive Mowat Centre out of business

    DoFo was elected by the ordinary, everyday selfish rube.

    He’ll be taken out by the ordinary, everyday thinking person.

    There are more “good for all” than “good for me”, in my experience.

    Doug Ford is twisting in a funnel cloud of ignorance, throwing shit at the wall, to see what sticks.

    I think we all know how that approach plays out. Gravity is a heck of an influence. ;)

    Ford is approaching this with a very specific policy shift in mind. It's likely not the end since we're seeing a regular stream of announcements. Not until the backlash is too much.

  23. Looks like Preferred Collision near Finch and the 400 - the place that has that huge Doug Ford political billboard along the highway, took down his sign.

    I was hoping they had gone out of business.
