Doug Ford has yet to respond to breach of trust allegations made by Rob Ford's widow - 2018-09-06
More than three months after being accused of breach of trust and poor business acumen in a $16.5 million lawsuit, Premier Doug Ford has yet to respond with a defence.
The legal attacks against Ford came from his late brother Rob's widow Renata, who filed a statement of claim against Doug, his brother Randy and Ford company Deco Labels on June 1, just days before the election that elevated Doug to power.
Renata has alleged in her statement of claim that Doug, as one of the trustees of her late husband's estate, committed a "breach of trust" by selling without her knowledge or approval Rob's share of one arm of the family business to Randy for $1. She has also alleged that Doug and Randy are such poor executives — she claims "neither Doug Ford nor Randy Ford have the education and business ability" to run the company — that the firm's value has plummeted.
