Andrew Scheer & Doug Ford Are Keeping It Long Distance During The Ontario Campaign - 2019-09-18
Andrew Scheer has started his Ontario campaign, making his first appearance in Vaughan-Woodbridge and Etobicoke. However, people have started to notice that something, or more accurately, someone, is missing. Andrew Scheer and Doug Ford have not yet appeared together during the candidate's tour through the province.
Ford was at a rural expo in northern Ontario when he was asked whether Scheer's people had reached out to him. He said they had not.
"I'm busy governing," Ford said, according to CTV News. "It's a full-time job. I always joke around, they're working me like a rented mule this whole summer. Honestly, I just haven't had time." Ford also said that he did not want to "interfere" in the federal election, adding, "I want them to go out there and have a good race and let the best party win."
