Ford cancels patronage appointments - 2019-06-21
Tyler Albrecht on Thursday was appointed as the government's agent general in New York City. The post came with a $164,910 salary but was immediately criticized because Albrecht is friends with the sons of Ford's chief of staff, Dean French.
The connection, first reported by the Globe and Mail and Global News, is evident on Albrecht's Facebook page. He is online friends with both of French's sons and knew French personally through playing lacrosse.
The senior government source refused to say why Albrecht's appointment or another awarded to Taylor Shields was revoked.
