Liberal official apologizes for crude remark about Doug Ford

  Liberal official apologizes for crude remark about Doug Ford A senior campaign official for the Ontario Liberals is apologizing for a crude comment he made on live television about Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford. David Herle, the campaign co-chair for Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, issued a statement this evening saying he regrets the comment and he apologizes "without qualification." "Doug Ford has a long history of using derogatory and insulting terms to refer to a wide range of people with whom he disagrees — including female journalists, parents of autistic children and many others," Herle said in the statement.

Spokeswoman Melissa Lantsman said Ford ’s campaign events will be broadcast online and his itinerary will be released for media interested in covering them in person. READ MORE: Doug Ford promises to let the people of Hamilton decide fate of LRT.

A large mid-April ice storm didn't stop Progressive Conservative leader Doug Ford from unveiling his new campaign bus and slogan on Sunday.

Ford offered a glimpse at his election bus at the Toronto Coach Terminal downtown, despite police and city officials urging people to stay off the roads this weekend.

Emblazoned on the side of his bus is Ford's new slogan, "For The People."

Ford said the tagline drew inspiration from hearing supporters say, "Doug, do it for the people," while on the campaign trail.

  Kathleen Wynne compares Doug Ford to Donald Trump, saying he 'traffics in smears and lies' Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne blasted Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford on Wednesday, comparing him to U.S. President Donald Trump and saying he 'stands for nothing other than Doug Ford.' "Doug Ford sounds like Donald Trump and that's because he is like Donald Trump. Ugly, vicious, a brand of politics that traffics in smears and lies," Wynne told an audience at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto.

"We're getting our campaign into a new gear," said Ford, and the slogan is a part of that new initiative to clean up the "mess" in Ontario, he added.

Ford's campaign promises to fix hydro, create jobs, cut hospital wait times and restore accountability.

The PC leader also fought back against Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals who launched attack ads targeting Ford earlier in the week.

The ad claims Ford will "give corporations huge tax cuts, but take the minimum wage raise right out of hard working people's pockets."

Ford said Wynne has tried this trick before.

"She will spend your money to try to buy your votes, but the people know better. She will not fool the people of Ontario this time," said Ford.

Wynne defends comparing Ford to Trump, says it's not a campaign strategy

  Wynne defends comparing Ford to Trump, says it's not a campaign strategy Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is defending her comparison of Ontario Progressive Leader Doug Ford to U.S. President Donald Trump this week, saying she doesn't think her remarks will undermine the province's trade relationship with the U.S. in any way. Wynne said comparing Ford to Trump is not a campaign strategy as Ontario heads to the polls on June 7th. She said she has been to the U.S. several times and has worked hard to secure trading deals for Ontario."I've been very, very careful," Wynne told CBC's Metro Morning on Thursday."I don't know what Donald Trump's reaction would or wouldn't be.

And they’re the kind of practical choices that voters will have to consider during the coming campaign . They’ll have to keep in mind the real lives and important services that could be sacrificed on the altar of Doug Ford ’s simplistic slogans .

Ford was scheduled to make campaign appearances in Innisfil and North Bay, Ont., over the weekend, but those stops were cancelled due to the poor weather conditions.

Ontarians will head to the polls for the provincial election on June 7.

  • Liberals launch 'Real Doug Ford' ad campaign ahead of election

  • In Ontario, get ready for a grudge match .
    And so it starts. Even before the “official” beginning of the provincial election campaign, the deluge of polls has begun.And the news isn’t good for the governing Liberals. The CBC’s Eric Grenier, who compiles an aggregation of publicly available polls and has historically been quite accurate in his predictions, says that if an election were held today, it is more likely than not that the PCs would form a majority government.But the election is not going to be held today. It is, of course going to be held on June 7 after what I predict will be one of the most ruthless and cut-throat campaigns Ontario has ever seen.
