Doug Ford's road to leader of Ontario PC party paved with controversy - 2018-03-11
• During his time as councillor, Ford faced criticism after handing out $20 bills to residents at a social housing complex at Christmastime in 2013. Councillors raised concerns he was buying votes, as earlier that same week he'd pledged to personally donate a total of $50,000 to parks around the city.
• Ford claimed there were more library branches than Tim Hortons in his area.
• When Canadian literary icon Margaret Atwood criticized Ford's suggested library cuts in 2011, Ford fired back, telling reporters he didn't "even know her. If she walked by me, I wouldn't have a clue who she is."
