Cronyism and the Doug Ford Government
Since he took office, Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s popularity has plummeted, with his approval rating currently sitting around 20 percent. Last month, his chief of staff Dean French resigned amid allegations of nepotism after it was revealed that he had personal connections to two people appointed as trade representatives for the government. Several other resignations have followed.
Host Tamara Khandaker speaks with Travis Dhanraj, the Queens Park Bureau Chief for Global News about the cronyism accusations lobbied against the Ford government and how the scandal plaguing the Ontario government could impact Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives in the upcoming federal election.
