Ford should rethink trade job hire
Re: Ford adviser appointed to trade post (Oct. 19)
Premier Doug Ford appoints campaign adviser Ian Todd as Ontario’s trade representative to the U.S., a job that will pay him $350,000 a year — $75,000 more than his Liberal predecessor.
Economic Development Minister Jim Wilson defends the salary, saying Todd is not eligible for pension or termination payments.
I would expect this from other parties but not the Conservatives.
I suggest Mr. Ford rethink this or he will be a one-term premier.
Most of the people who voted for the Conservatives do not make even $75,000 a year.
As for Mr. Todd’s pension concerns, I suggest he does like most people and consider RRSPs or mutual funds. Steve Whines Brantford
