Ontario Premier Doug Ford's cabinet made a significant change to Ontario's appointment rules, CTV News Toronto has learned, in order to fast-track an appointee to the Local Planning Appeals Tribunal (LPAT), an agency that mediates disputes between developers and municipalities.

The change allowed the Premier's Office to bypass appointment rules that stipulate the government must use a "competitive, merit-based process," including publicly posting the position for 10 business days.

Sources say that when members of the Progressive Conservative government quietly questioned why the Premier's Office wanted to speed through the appointment process, they were told the matter was "urgent."
