Ontario Premier Doug Ford touted his government's accomplishments and slammed his Liberal predecessors in a campaign-style speech at an event north of Toronto on Saturday.

Ford Fest, an annual barbecue that used to be held in the backyard of the premier's family home, was co-hosted by the Progressive Conservative Party this year.

It was still free and open to the public, but unlike previous years, this year's gathering required attendees to register for tickets and came with the caveat that anyone could be denied a ticket.
