April Fools' Gold

Doug Ford, the leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, has some difficulty in basic comprehension.

Every year here in Ontario, Canada, there is a much anticipated release of a document called the "Sunshine List"; a rundown of public sector workers who make an annual salary of over $100,000. Mister Ford has a problem with the 2018 list. Fine. He spoke recently of how there are too many people on the ever-growing list and that there are many workers in this great province who have not had a raise in years. Fine.

The trick is this: Mr Ford has been a vocal opponent of the Ontario Liberal Party raising the province's minimum wage.
