If Ontarians elect a Ford government this Thursday, there will be no cooler heads left to stop him

But there are! One of the great advantages of our parliamentary democracy is that even if he leads a majority government, Mr. Ford must maintain the confidence of his backbenchers in order to remain Premier. If he does something crazy, his backbenchers can force him out.

That is how Margaret Thatcher was removed from power.. Her backbenchers rebelled and forced her out.
