We all know how difficult it can be to answer uncomfortable questions. But no one has mastered the art of dodging awkward queries quite like Doug Ford. In the latest Doug Ford news, CTV Toronto's Queen's Park Bureau Chief Colin D'Mello engaged Premier Ford in a rather painful interview. D'Mello probed Ford on how much it cost Ontario taxpayers to have Ontario News Now broadcast Ford's trip to New York City this week.\nThe premier's visit to the Big Apple mainly consisted of meetings with business leaders to promote Ontario's vast range of the investment opportunities throughout the province, reports CTV News. Ford even took centre stage on the small screen by making a brief appearance on American news channel Fox News Business.\nFord reportedly explained that the visit to New York was one of the "most rewarding trips he has ever been on", commenting to reporters that he thought it was "a positive, positive trip."\nThe provincial government has not yet disclosed how much the New York City trip will be costing taxpayers, nor has it revealed how much it cost to bring along the Ontario News Now crew to film and interview Ford. Ontario News Now is a social media platform operated by the Progressive Conservative caucus staff.\nThe Ford government is encountering severe criticism for bringing Ontario News Now to New York without inviting any Canadian media platforms to join in on the visit. Ford told CTV News Toronto, "I make no apologies for getting the message out."\nHere's the clip of Doug Ford's interview with D'Mello that's getting the most attention.\nWe pressed Premier Doug Ford on who's footing the bill for Ontario News Now's presence in NYC. #onpoli pic.twitter.com/NDpNSWkDYd— Colin D'Mello CTVNews (@ColinDMello) May 1, 2019\nWhen D'Mello pushed Ford on revealing how much taxpayers were paying for Ontario News Now, Ford responded by merely stating "it’s not as much as the millions of dollars, tens of millions, that they’re going to invest."\nThe rest of Ontario seems to be less than impressed by the interview. Social media users have praised D'Mello for pushing Ford to answer the "tough questions" in an attempt to hold him accountable. These are just a handful of the many reactions that the clip has gotten so far:\nHis, "I love your spin, Colin" reminds me of "I love that smile, Kathleen". It's just as creepy and disingenuous now, in this situation, as it was then.— Kelly snow Mexican Palicki 🐔🍷 (@kpal65) May 1, 2019\nDoug promised us transparency...unless it makes him look bad.— Brian (@335Brian) May 1, 2019\n@fordnation practices the art of dodging the question. A+ for that. #onpoli— Lynda Del Grande (@LyndaDelGrande) May 1, 2019\nSo when Colin directly asks Ford how much ONN is costing the taxpayer, Ford spins the conversation by accusing Colin of spin tactics. That’s some next level 1984 doublespeak.— Vandon Gene (@vandongene) May 1, 2019\nGo for a freedom of information act-request Colin! If it's public money, they have to publish it.— Mike Lafferty (@MikeLafferty20) May 1, 2019\nWow, so @fordnation thinks MSM asking him a direct, straight-forward question is "spin"! Keep asking Colin. Taxpayers have a right to know. #ontpoli— Irene B. (@PainterMom101) May 1, 2019\nYes!!!! Keep this up please! Amazing work. Holding him or any politician accountable is a key role in our society. pic.twitter.com/FK69P7kD32— 𝕋𝕠𝕞 🇨🇦 (@T_V_I_) May 1, 2019\nThe more I repeatedly watch the cringe-worthy exchange between Ford and D'Mello, the more I can't help but wonder: how much did it cost Ontario taxpayers? Ford's response (or lack thereof) leads Ontarians to believe that - like in most cases - ignorance is not bliss, especially when the answers directly influence how much money we'll be keeping in our wallets.
