The Canada Day party on the front lawn of the Ontario legislature is back on as the Liberals fill the void left when Premier Doug Ford's government axed the traditional celebration on short notice.

A year after being reduced to a rump of seven MPPs in Ford's landslide election victory, the former governing party is hosting a "people's picnic" on the grounds from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a DJ and free ice cream.

"No one cancels Canada Day," Liberal MPP Mitzie Hunter (Scarborough-Guildwood) said Friday, acknowledging the event will be a scaled-down version of the festivities in past years which have featured musicians and entertainers on stage and a 21-gun salute by the military.
