politics Doug Ford Won't Be Running in the Next Provincial Election
The councillor announces he'll focus instead on brother Rob's mayoral campaign—but leaves the door open for a future provincial run.
On Thursday morning, controversial first-term councillor Doug Ford (Ward 2, Etobicoke North) announced that he will not run for the Progressive Conservative party in the next provincial election. The councillor said he was unable to commit to a provincial run because he wants to concentrate on managing his brother Rob's mayoral campaign. "I can't wear two hats and be a candidate for the PC party and a campaign manager," he said.
