Doug Ford looking into why actors were hired as PC supporters at Ontario leaders' debate - 2018-05-08
Ford was asked about the move during a Tuesday morning news conference after actors told local media about the casting call. One actor forwarded CBC Toronto a copy of the casting call, which offered 20 actors the chance to be paid $75 "to play real people at a Ford nation rally" from 2 to 8 p.m. ET.
Dozens of noisy Ford supporters rallied in front of the Citytv studios ahead of the debate, waving signs and shouting support for the PC leader and Meredith Cartwright, the PC candidate for Toronto Centre.
