“I am disappointed and concerned that Premier Ford is hiding his mandate letters from the people we are elected to serve. For a government that claims to have been elected to restore trust and accountability, this does exactly the opposite.

Ontarians deserve better than a leader who governs by surprise. They deserve honesty and transparency about what the next four years will look like.”
