Doug Ford stands by LCBO vice-chair linked to mystery newspaper ad - 2020-02-07
In the wake of revelations in the Star that mysterious newspaper ads attacking teachers' unions are linked to Tory patronage appointee Quinto Annibale, Ford's office rallied to his defence.
Annibale "will continue to serve in his current role" as vice-chair of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, the premier's office said Friday.
The Woodbridge lawyer was appointed last April to the part-time posting, which pays $583 a day. The board meets seven times a year, suggesting he would earn $4,081 annually from the Crown liquor monopoly.
