Ontario's Green Party is calling on the Progressive Conservative government to overhaul the province's public appointments process to avoid repeating a scandal that has rocked Premier Doug Ford's office.

Over the past month, several high-level Ford government appointees were fired or resigned after their personal or familial connections to Dean French, the premier's former chief-of-staff, were revealed.

The scandal forced French to tender his own resignation and the government to put pending appointments under the microscope to investigate any inappropriate ties to the party.
