Way back when Doug Ford was a Toronto councillor, he liked to say he was “for the little guy.” Now that he is Ontario’s premier, he’s said it, or something like it, over and over.

Perhaps when he says it, Ford means something other than the traditional definition of “little guy” — a regular working citizen working hard to get by against the odds.

Maybe what Ford means is a diminutive male in an expensive suit who already has more than he needs, but has no intention of seeing anyone less fortunate get a bigger slice of the pie.

Consider what Ford’s government has done in the last week or so.
