Doug Ford's Party Has Been Using This Ridiculous Tactic To Avoid Questions At Press Conferences - 2018-08-01
Doug Ford is not winning any favour with the media lately. First, his party announced that they would be creating their own news channel called Ontario News Now. The service is completely run by the Conservatives and fully funded by taxpayer dollars which Ontarians are claiming reports all biased fake news.
As if that wasn't bad enough, the Conservatives have developed a ridiculous tactic to dodge questions at press conferences and reporters are pissed.
One Queen's Park reporter tweeted recently that at almost every Conservative party press conference, staff members, who are paid with taxpayer dollars, are on hand and after a couple questions have been answered they clap on cue to drown out any more questions from reporters.
