Anti-environmentalism will be front and centre in a Ford government in Ontario..

Worldwide, the populist right does not have a common ideology or program. It varies from country to country. Its tenets could include nationalism, hostility to immigrants and refugees, varying degrees of racism and Islamophobia, and mistrust of both educated, urban elites and of government.

Some of the attitudes on that list fit the Doug Ford Ontario Conservatives; some do not. There is, however, one key ideological tenet not on the list that unites most on the populist right, especially in North America: radical and fervent anti-environmentalism.
