Premier Doug Ford was absent from question period for the fourth day in a row on Wednesday as the opposition demanded answers about the firing of a senior OPP officer and called for a public inquiry into allegations of political interference in the OPP.

The New Democrats have been grilling the government all week during question period about the firing of Brad Blair, the OPP deputy commissioner.

Blair, a 32-year veteran of the OPP, is waging a court battle about the government's decision to appoint a longtime friend of Ford, Toronto Police Supt. Ron Taverner, to lead the provincial force.
