Do you ever get those days when you just want to turn off your notifications, switch off your phone and ignore the whole world? Ontario's premier does. Doug Ford's phone number was disconnected this past week. The need to disconnect is a feeling most people have experienced at least once before, and it can be a relaxing and satisfactory way to switch off every now and then. For most people, there’s no problem with this. That is, unless, you happen to be the premier of a pretty big province. All eyes on you, Doug Ford!\nAccording to new reports, Doug Ford cancelled his cell phone, which means members of his province are now unable to contact him or call him. The reason for the cancellation, according to Ford’s office, is because he was being ‘inundated’ with calls from ‘special interest groups’ on the cell phone.\nFord’s decision to cut off his phone is particularly frustrating for many Ontarians, as Ford has always prided himself on being a very contactable person. He has personally given out his cell phone number for months, and has always promised that it is a way for Ontarians across the province to contact him directly, should they ever need to.\nIt seems to be something that runs in the family, as Doug Ford has followed in his brother's footsteps when it comes to giving out his phone number. Doug’s younger brother, the late mayor Rob Ford, was well-known for handing out his home phone number and speaking to the public at all hours of the day or night. Unfortunately, it seems his older brother hasn’t quite managed to stick to his word in the same way.\nAccording to his office, Ford cancelled his cell phone earlier this week, on Tuesday, after certain groups made the phone impossible to use. While Ford is still contactable through his official channels, such as his general email and office phone number, Ontarians are not satisfied.\nAs Ford is known for often giving out his cell phone number at both public and private events, and for actively encouraging people in the province to contact him directly, many people feel that the premier should stick to his word.\nResidents of Ontario and Canada in general took to Twitter when the news broke on Wednesday, to express their frustration with the uncontactable premier.\nis "special interest group" code for normal taxpayers???????— rob (@robrutherford) July 17, 2019\nDOUG FORD: Here's my phone number.

It's all him. #ONpoli https://t.co/lBvUowkSWZ— I'll Be Bach If You Can Handel It (@IllBeBachIfYou1) July 17, 2019\nOr maybe too many constituents complaining about him.— Chris Fung (@SPTO) July 17, 2019\nI guess he can no longer call himself the most accessible Premier in the province's history, when he disconnects his cell phone without informing the public how to reach him. No constituency days, no way to contact him. Sounds like a tyrannical dictator— Craig Rigden (@CraigRigden) July 17, 2019\nCanadians were first made aware that Ford’s cell phone didn’t seem to be taking calls when one Twitter user shared a video of her trying to contact the premier. In the video, she attempts to call Doug Ford, and the line does not connect. Calls to his phone number were met with an automated message that said the line is no longer in service.\nOnce the video was posted, many frustrated Ontarians took to the same social media platform to respond.\nIt appears Doug Ford no longer wants to hear from the people. pic.twitter.com/Qjw5DCElsV— Stacy Kennedy (@MrsMarambio) July 17, 2019\nDone with faking he’s for “the people”, I guess he figured it out we’re on to him! You’re such a joke @fordnation— Sharon Higgs (@ssssharonnnnnnn) July 17, 2019\n@fordnation never answered the phone anyways. He never called me back after I left messages. He has never even replied to any of my emails. #NotForThePeople #AutismDoesntEndAtFord— Aubrey-Ann Watkins (@WatkinsAubrey) July 17, 2019\npoor #DougFraud just wants to take his 5 month vacation on your dime in peace....or maybe this is another "efficiency" they identified and cut— Xenomorph113 (@ericstirr) July 17, 2019\nDamn, I’ve been texting every day for a while now pic.twitter.com/B26be59Lh2— Shuhiba Mohammad (@ShuhibaMohammad) July 17, 2019\nYep, mine went unanswered too. pic.twitter.com/f9PoiFCEVM— Simone Fraser (@fraisesu) July 17, 2019\ndid he ever want to hear from the "PEOPLE" @fordnation— Heidi Joe (@HeidinJoe) July 17, 2019\nDoug Ford is yet to make an official announcement himself regarding the cancellation of his public cell-phone.
