For the last 20 years I have ranked Mike Harris as Ontario’s worst premier — at least in the last 75 years and possibly ever.

I was out of the country during Bob Rae’s tenure as premier, years that many Ontarians argue were disastrous, although much of Rae’s troubles can be attributed to the fact he was sworn in as premier about 17 hours before the start of a deep global recession that hit Ontario hard.

Now, though, Doug Ford has changed my mind about Harris.
