Doug Ford says he's 'not interested' in the federal election - 2019-08-09
"Whoever gets in, I'm going to work with them."
Ford said he's "talked to Andrew" and thinks the two have a "good" relationship. Responding to questions about Scheer appearing to distance himself from the premier, Ford replied, "I don't know about distancing himself. You could say that about me, too. You could say I'm distancing myself from the federal government in this election."
Scheer was asked repeatedly what he thought about Ford's record during an event at Toronto's Mount Sinai Hospital last week, and evaded giving a specific answer that mentioned Ford by name. "I believe Justin Trudeau would like to run this next election against anyone except for me," Scheer replied, alleging that Trudeau was looking for other people to "attack" or "distract Canadians."
