The following individuals are members of the transition team:

The Hon. John Baird

  1. Let’s hope Ford surrounds himself with smart people and heeds their advice.

  2. Ford is going to have his work cut out for him because Ontario is very indebted and now with the unemployment and everything else he wont know where to turn. Ford will need a mighty good team to help him with the big mess that Winnie and her soul mate McGuinty made and what a disaster. I see no end for a long time in this fiasco. There are no jobs and many people are struggling.

  3. Actually, Jules, unemployment in Ontario is the lowest it’s been for a long time.

    That’s not true Furtz ol chum. The rate is lowest, but that doesn’t include those not part of the system or who’ve given up. Likewise, it also doesn’t reflect how badly some are employed.

  5. Jamie and Furtz things are not good at all in Ontario. My daughter is staying put in a very horrible job and much worse than the other stores. My daughter has been working in that snake pit for 5 years and she said this morning that if people don’t have others to speak for them then they are literally screwed. My daughter is at the snake pit just now and literally dreads it but there is nothing

  6. Did Jules actually Vote? I find that hard to believe after all she said about all politicians not being worth it.
