Premier Ford A Male Chauvinist Pig, Says Councillor Parrish
Mississauga Councillor Carolyn Parrish was not happy about what Premier Doug Ford said about Mayor Bonnie Crombie and clapped back. Parrish called Ford “a male chauvinist pig,” and said that his remarks about the mayor were unacceptable. Ford mentioned in his speech on Wednesday that the mayors opposing the housing legislation need to stop whining.
On Wednesday, Premier Doug Ford and Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney were present in Brampton where they announced funding for public transit projects across the province. During his announcement, Ford spoke about the housing legislation that calls for more houses to be built and eliminates some developer fees. He pointed out that there are some mayors, including Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie, who oppose this legislation.
Ford said he does not know what Crombie’s problem is and that she, along with other mayors, needs to stop whining. He added that these mayors don’t want to play in the sandbox.
Carolyn Parrish who is a supporter of Crombie defended the mayor and said, “I believe in everything Bonnie has done, and I think it’s disgusting the way she’s being treated by the premier. He’s a male chauvinist pig.” She added that Ford’s press conferences were “appalling” and that he needs to start treating officials with respect.
