When Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford announced he was backing away from plans to allow new development in Ontario's Greenbelt, Lyndsey Vanstone captured the moment with her Ford Nation Live television crew.

It is easy for her to get access to Ford: after all, she is his executive assistant and former press secretary.

As Ford campaigns around the province ahead of the June 7 election, Vanstone is there to cover his every move in a series of partisan, TV-news-style videos that are racking up hundreds of thousands of views on Facebook.
