His Warship and his brother/caregiver have no credibility. They take credit for any positive news and try to distance themselves from anything negative. What does Ford expect of a budget when he eliminates revenue sources and will not consider new revenue sources. Many people are Air Max Price In Saudi Arabia swayed by his bluster and believe he is like Robin Hood when, in fact, he is stealing from the poor to give to the rich. Taxes such as the land transfer tax and Toronto car ownership fee are somewhat voluntary, but everybody has to pay the property tax which is where his giveaways end up.
