Andrew Scheer's Conservative Party is struggling to make inroads in Ontario, the battleground province that's likely to decide October's federal election. He might have Ontario Premier Doug Ford to thank for that.

Multiple polls suggest Ford and his Progressive Conservative government are deeply unpopular, just one year after ousting Kathleen Wynne's Liberals from office.

While those polls undoubtedly aren't being welcomed by provincial Progressive Conservatives — and may have been the motive behind Monday's about-face on cuts to municipal funding — they don't necessarily represent a pressing problem for Ford. He still has another three years to go before the next provincial election.
