Last week, the Ford government announced it was breaking its election promise to build a French-language university, and axed the office of the French-language services commissioner. The government said the office's responsibilities would be absorbed by the provincial ombudsman.

In a rare move, Progressive Conservative MPP Amanda Simard released a statement on her Facebook page saying she was disappointed by the cuts.

"You have an ally in me, and I will never let you down," Simard said in a translated version of the post. She said the cuts "disappoint me greatly, and I share this disappointment and frustration today, having initially worked internally as much as possible to reverse these decisions."
