While talking about the possibility of further privatization in health care, Doug Ford says ”everything is on the table” when asked if the government is considering moving more services out of hospitals, such as surgeries.
The premier adds the Conservatives are consulting with experts, but guarantees ”you’ll always be covered by OHIP … not the credit card,” when all of a sudden …
”Holy Christ! I just swallowed a bee,” said a startled Ford.
Asked by a reporter is he was okay, the premier said he was, adding ”he’s down here. He has a lot of real estate (referring to his stomach).”
Ford knows the incident will attract as much attention as his remarks.
”This is going to be replayed over and over again. This is a classic, okay,” he chuckled.
”This is a good one. I’m going to be howling tonight watching this tape.”
