"I'm gonna work with him, in a good way, not in a bad way."
Ford told reporters during a press conference on Wednesday that he intends to make sure the prime minister follows through on what he promised Ontario in his campaign.
"There's a lot of people in Ontario that supported the prime minister. Now it's time for the prime minister, he made a lot of promises, to support the people of Ontario," the premier said during an update at Queen's Park.
"Make no mistake about it, I'm going to be right in the front line in making sure all those promises he's committed to, he fulfills them. I'm gonna work with him collaboratively, in a good way, not in a bad way, but a good way. But my number one priority over anything is protecting the people of Ontario, making sure their interests come first," he added.
The comment comes after reporters asked Ford about a childcare deal between the province and the federal government.
