Doug Ford is a former Toronto councillor and the older brother of the late Rob Ford, the one-time mayor of Toronto. Ford most recently ran against former Ontario PC leader John Tory and former NDP MP Olivia Chow in a race to become the city’s mayor in 2014, finishing in second place. Ford had previously said he would run to become the city’s mayor again in 2018, but leaped at the opportunity to lead the Ontario PCs. He was the first person to enter the provincial race and so far, the only man to do so. Like his brother, Ford is all about saving money for the taxpayer. In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Ford says he wants to get rid of the “nasty carbon tax,” adding he will be adopting 90 per cent of the party’s so-called “People’s Guarantee” platform, put forward by former leader Patrick Brown. The husband and father says he will be able to save money by identifying and eliminating wasteful government spending. When comparing himself to the other leadership candidates, Ford says he’s “the only person that’s actually run government before.” Ford says he intends to run as an MPP in Toronto’s Etobicoke North riding.
