    This is insane. When a politician breaks the rules it’s a mistake, when the citizenship does its a charge. Out with Ford

      @Slows politicians don’t tend to do things “by accident”, until they’re caught breaking a law, cheating on their spouse, taking bribes, etc.THEN, it’s an “accident” and they’re sorry (for being caught)

      @Slows accident? They know the rules because they make them. Plus they were reminded by staff to follow the rules.

      Even though Ford is spinning this and covering for osterhoff he makes it sound like the mistake was getting caught, not doing it.

    • You seem to think saying sorry because you got caught is some sort of morally superior position to be in. It’s not

      Try that again. What you are saying is not getting through. Something about being sorry and superior

  4. Didnt a father get fined heavily for simply biking in a park with his kids when things first got shut down? What a joke

  5. So if you say your sorry you don’t get a fine? This is great to know!

    If we make a mistake, we get reprehended like a child from Ford but if his politicians make a mistake they get praised for apologizing? What a joke this government we have in Ontario. We need some of the fresh blood politicians from Alberta. We need change from this incompetent politicians we have here.

  7. I made a mistake too, I voted for Doug Fraud.

  8. Well Ford then maybe you should ask the MPP Sam Oosterhoff to get his brain scanned……

  9. Nuremberg Trials, Doug.

  10. It’s not a mistake. He just got caught. Captain cheese cake is the worst of all. The irony is that his slogan was Open for business and he has destroyed all the business.

  11. You are a mistake and you need to apologize and step down before you destroy the entire province beyond recovery

  12. What is the acronym for a conservative in name only? L*I*B*E*R*A*L

    “Rules for thee, not for me”…. said any government official EVER.

  14. Does this particular yahoo need his brain scanned too?

  15. POLITICIANS have MONOPOLIZED FRAUD which they now call “MISTAKES”

  16. He admitted he made mistakes because he got caught!

  17. Nice to see that politicians are one again free from consequences like our loser pm

  18. I’ll remember to apologize if I’m ever in trouble. Get out of jail free card. Getting sick of rules for thee but not for me. Fine him or fire him.

  19. Does this mean if we get fined for any covid violations we can say sorry and all is forgotten?

    Protect the charter of rights from corrupt government, please educate yourselves and make an informed opinion.
    “the line canada”

    Where you can get the other half of the story major news stations will not cover.

  20. Remove Sam Oosterhoff from his position NOW.
