Tim Hudak talks about the Rob Ford phenomenon
Ontario Conservative Leader Tim Hudak spoke rather glowingly about mayoral candidate Rob Ford yesterday, expressing a lack of surprise that the Etobicoke councillor has taken such a commanding lead.
"People are looking for a change in government. They are tired of paying more and getting less in return," Hudak said Monday. "I think Rob Ford has very successfully tapped into what's always been something he's stood for - ending the gravy train at City Hall and getting taxpayers value for the money," he told the Sun.
"I think a lot of grassroots Conservative workers here in the City of Toronto my view is more going to be behind the Ford campaign than the others combined."
Also unsurprising is Hudak's theory that Rob Ford putatively value-oriented platform is spreading across the province.
