At a time when Ford's government is announcing steep cuts to schools, healthcare and assistance for the poor, running a taxpayer-funded propaganda outlet endlessly glorifying Ontario's Premier might seem like a wrong priority to some.

On Monday, a news outlet calling itself "Ontario News Now" suddenly appeared on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram as a source for "timely exclusive content on the PC government's priorities for the people of Ontario."

In the first episode of 'Doug TV', news presenter Lyndsey Vanstone takes a "look back" at Ford's first month in office, highlighting his appearance at several photo ops and bragging about a number of things Ford repealed (notably, Vanstone does not mention Ford's repeal of Ontario's sex-ed curriculum or his plan to gerrymander City Council wards in an attempt to rig Toronto's upcoming municipal elections).
