Doug Ford has canceled two overseas taxpayer-funded patronage appointments after news broke of their connections to Doug Ford's chief of staff.

New outlets reported that Taylor Shields is a second cousin of the wife of Doug Ford's chief of staff. Shields was initially appointed as an "agent-general" to London, a taxpayer-funded position worth more than $165,000 per year.
