Doug Ford upended a local Ontario PC nomination process and appointed an ex-host from the alt-right Rebel Media website to run in London, Ontario.

Even though he told his own party members "every single riding nomination is going to be 100 percent transparent," Ford moved to unilaterally appoint 11 Ontario PC candidates last weekend.

In London West, Ford ousted an aspiring PC candidate who had spent the last two years campaigning for the nomination – the would-be nominee called Ford's move a "brazen abuse of power" and a "sad day for the grassroots of our Ontario PC party."
