Paikin is a Hamilton private school elite, and he serves the interests of the elite in the game of politics. His article essentially says, “this is why she played the game poorly”. Silence on why the Ford Conservatives’ racist attacks are a dishonourable tactic. He is amplifying these dangerous assumptions in his obsession with talking down to, and smearing Jama’s competence.

Correct, she issued her comments after Netanyahu’s government had already aerially bombarded civilian neighbourhoods, well into the fifth day of the complete siege of Gaza cutting off food, water, and power. As Loreto details, Paikin lacks the principles & frankly the personal interest, using his mouthpiece to act as a tool of the oppressor. No matter-Jama is winning a place on the right side of history.

Bravo. It's really something to see the Conservatives single out an MPP who reps the poorest urban riding in Ontario. Jama got my vote in Ham Centre; her predecessor as MPP didn't!

Judging by recent statements made by Premier Ford about MPP Jama, seems like Paikin is handing his copy over to his partner in the Premier's office

Hmm, and his brother Jeff owns lands that were taken in the #GreenbeltGrab. CBC article on Greenbelt reversal: "Jeff Paikin, who is the president of New Horizon Development Group and a director of the company that owns one of the 15 parcels of land in question, said "it is an interesting position to take" by the government.

His company owns 15 acres of land in Grimsby, Ont.
