Doug Ford has faced his fair share of criticism this year. Protests against his policies have become something of a new norm in Ontario, as students and parents alike continue to come together to attack the Premier’s agenda. Despite the haters, Ford has remained resilient, barely acknowledging the seemingly constant stream of complaints against his government.

Whether you are pro or anti-Ford, it would be hard to deny that the decisions Ontario's Premier is making are controversial. Whether right or wrong, they have a struck nerve with the people of Ontario and they are speaking their minds.
