Doug Ford government launches 'Ontario News Now' while limiting questions from reporters - 2018-07-31
Premier Doug Ford's government has launched a new social media account to promote its agenda.
The Twitter account @ontarionewsnow was created on July 12, and its first content was published on Monday night. A minute-long video, captioned "Premier Ford takes a look back at his first month in office," features a montage of Ford in various situations including a visit to Woodbine Racetrack, meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and participating in the First Ministers meeting.
Lyndsey Vanstone, a former broadcaster and Ford campaign staffer, is the on-air presenter in the video. In a voice-over, Vanstone said, "Premier Ford attended dozens of events in 30 days and he managed to keep a few campaign promises, too."
