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.
