Toronto Blue Jays an “essential service” — but local businesses and playgrounds are not

As I said on Friday's show, it’s pretty obvious that a game of baseball isn’t an "essential service" — because Ontario, and Toronto in particular, have banned parks and playgrounds and children’s sports.

So how do you say that baseball is essential when it’s played by millionaires in a league owned by billionaires, then it’s banned for the little people?

Now, I get it. It’s big business.

So just say so.

Don’t literally have the public health authority make the announcement. It’s not a medical decision. It’s a political decision.

By the way, the Blue Jays, which are valued at two billion dollars, are owned by Rogers Communication.

A TV and Internet company.

That Toronto Mayor John Tory used to run.

Isn’t that a cozy little coincidence?
