Ford Says Trudeau Made A Lot Of Promises To Ontarians & He's Going To Make Sure He Keeps Them

Premier Doug Ford may have congratulated Justin Trudeau on his recent federal election win, but he says he will continue to hold the prime minister to his promises.

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.

Trudeau's platform includes promises of addressing Canada's housing crisis, restoring 1 million jobs lost during the pandemic, bringing national greenhouse gas emissions down and more.
