Doug Ford begs protestors to stop scaring children in his neighborhood

Premier Doug Ford asks protesters in anti-mask and anti-COVID-19 restrictions to stop coming to his home every Saturday morning because neighborhood kids are scared

« It’s not about me, » Ford said at his Monday press briefing. « But I have the best neighbors in the world and my street is full of little children »

When protesters show up at 10 a.m. every weekend, kids don’t come out to play as they normally would, said Ford, who explained that kids still play road hockey on his street but don’t do more when protesters come

« My neighbors didn’t sign up for this, I did I signed up to be first If you want to protest me, God bless you, free speech come here and protest, do what you want « , he said »But please, leave my neighbors and the children alone »

While it may not have been intentional, he said the crowd and the loudspeakers scared the children and frustrated the neighbors

A few weeks ago, Ford said a protester also spilled fake blood on the road and that Toronto firefighters and police had to come down to clean it up, which he described as a waste time and resources

Speaking on Monday, Ford also asked people to text him less and not write messages about trivial matters

« I am one of the few elected officials in the country that everyone seems to have my phone number, » he said, adding that he appreciated that people contacted him often and that he could help them

However, he said people were sending him « hundreds and hundreds » of messages a day which wasted his time getting to emergencies

« I just can’t keep up and still believe in re-messaging, so the more people messaging me about trivial things then it can take [time] off for people who need my help, please be patient « he said » I will do my best «
