Ontario Election

Niagara Falls

Yesterday was election day here in Ontario. The current Provincial government won by a landslide. I’m having a difficult time understanding how.

Back in July of 2018 shortly after Doug Ford was elected Premier I wrote a blog (https://youareenough712.wordpress.com/2018/07/29/distress-centers-demi-lovato-doug-ford/). It was not specifically about him but it did however include my anger towards him and his government for just having cut 330 million dollars in funding per year that had been originally allocated for mental health services. 

Fast forward two years later to another blog I wrote in April of 2020 where I praised Doug Ford for his quick, take charge, no nonsense response to the Pandemic (https://youareenough712.wordpress.com/2020/04/10/things-change-people-can-too/).

We were only 3 weeks in. What the heck did I know? What the heck did any of us know at the time? I may have been a bit too quick and a tad too naive to think that some people can change? I admit I may have jumped the gun on that one.

Well another two years have once again passed since then and my praises for the current government have long fallen back by the wasteside. 

I’m probably the least political person you will ever meet. I’m really just a very compassionate and empathetic advocate who feels big feelings for other people’s sufferings. I am also beyond blessed to live in an incredible country such as Canada  and a Province like Ontario that are both filled with so much beauty and diversity. 

As I begin to process my feelings of what the next four years could potentially look like for many of us and as I shudder to think what I will be writing about next  for now as we head into the weekend I am choosing to focus my attention on selfcare instead and some much needed #summerofrich time to remind myself just how incredibly blessed we truly are to be living in this beautifully diverse Province of ours.

What is the one thing you look most forward to about the weekend?
