Premier Doug Ford brushed off questions Monday about a controversy around government appointees with personal ties to his former chief of staff, suggesting the public doesn't care about it.

Dean French abruptly left his job as Ford's top adviser more than two weeks ago when it first emerged that people given lucrative foreign postings were connected to him.

Ford revoked those appointments, but as news of other government appointments having connections to French continued to emerge, the premier was silent on the issue.
