The Beacon Herald - - OPINION - Roger Sh­muir Brant­ford, Ont.

Premier Ford should be ashamed that the qual­i­fi­ca­tions re­quire­ments for the job of next com­mis­sioner of the OPP were low­ered dur­ing the hir­ing process to make his friend el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply and then be se­lected. Ear­lier, Ford ap­pointed a former PC party pres­i­dent as a spe­cial ad­viser on health care, a po­si­tion that comes with a $348,000 salary plus paid ex­penses. So far, we have yet to hear a peep from him on im­prov­ing the health-care sys­tem. And Ford is in a bat­tle with the Hy­dro One board over who will be the util­ity’s next CEO.

The premier should fo­cus on jobs for all On­tario res­i­dents.
