TORONTO -- The threat of a strike by thousands of Ontario education workers could mean bad news for federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer's popularity in the province, according to pollster Nik Nanos.

Citing nightly tracking data from Nanos Research, whenever Ontario's Progressive Conservative Premier Doug Ford is associated with Scheer, the federal Conservative leader's popularity suffers.

"It just distracts from his [Scheer's] image and his message," Nanos said during an interview with CTV's Trend Line podcast on Friday. "For some voters in Ontario who might not be happy with Premier Doug Ford, the Scheer Conservatives have to watch out about people connecting those two politicians."
