It has been a dodgy few days for Ontario’s Premier, Doug Ford. After announcing a major cabinet reshuffling on Thursday, then hiring and un-hiring several employees within 24 hours after accusations of nepotism, he has now angered Ontarians even more. Doug Ford has cancelled Canada Day celebrations at Queen’s Park in Toronto and people are not happy.\nThe Queen’s Park Canada Day celebration has been a tradition for over five decades, with the first event taking place back in 1967. However, it looks like the tradition ends here, as reports from Global News suggest that Doug Ford's government has cancelled the park’s front lawn celebrations, in favour of moving Ontarians to other attractions across the province.\nAccording to Global News, it was confirmed by numerous sources that the Ford government decided months ago to cancel the event at Queens Park.\nIn response to their inquiry, Premier Ford’s Executive Director of Communications, Laryssa Waler, said, “For the first time ever, our government is helping hard-working families celebrate Canada Day by offering free admission to the first 500 visitors at 10 different Ontario agencies and attractions. Instead of hosting a single event at Queen’s Park, we are providing free admission for thousands of people to Canada Day events across the province.”\nHappy Canada Day from Queens Park!! #CanadaDay2015 #eventprofs pic.twitter.com/EdWm7EEGMK— Bespoke Audio Visual (@bespokeav) July 1, 2015\nHonoured to host our provinces Canada Day celebrations at Queen’s Park this year. I am proud to serve as Premier of Ontario, but most of all, I am proud to call myself an Ontarian and a Canadian. #CanadaDay2018 pic.twitter.com/jVgWAtFDY5— Doug Ford (@fordnation) July 1, 2018\nThe Queen’s Park party, which is traditionally free, usually hosts inflatable rides, dance performances, activities for children and live entertainment.\nThere are also many nationalistic features of the celebration, such as the singing of the Canadian national anthem and citizenship ceremonies. In past years, it has also been common for the premier of the province to attend.\nThe Ford government maintains that the new festivities will be much more cost effective, as the Queen’s Park celebration has cost between $300,000 and $400,000 in the past. While the new approach will cost a fraction of that at approximately $80,000, many Canadians in the province are still unhappy with the changes and have taken to Twitter to protest.\nLMFAOOO doug ford really got so hurt over the booing that he cut CANADA DAY celebrations too, let alone cuts to education and healthcare. childish shit https://t.co/pl2scdlhDC— a (@_arxhad) June 21, 2019\nGuess he’d rather be at the cottage for opening LCBO early hours than keep on s tradition. Damn he truly is rubbish as a leader.— Arnold deVries 🇨🇦 (@bigkeeper13) June 21, 2019\nCause no one wants to celebrate with Ford, right?

Breaking Toronto's tradition is a blatant missed use of his power !— Gina Dow (@GinaDow7) June 21, 2019\nThis is just sad ! Why , is he breaking tradition that's our Toronto tradition. Doug Ford has some kind of vendetta against Toronto first the subways now this , Everybody should just go down to Queens Park him prove him wrong . Bring our own entertainment !— Gina Dow (@GinaDow7) June 21, 2019\nThe @ontariopcparty and @fordnation are afraid of protests and booing from the crowd. The current government is the worst leadership this province has ever had (and that's saying a lot considering I remember Mike Harris). #onpoli https://t.co/3dsgN4hKsn— Deborah Reid (@dreid63) June 21, 2019\nWhat’s next Christmas?
