Ontario Premier Doug Ford's government is exposing itself to a "perpetual" conflict of interest through its close ties to lobbyists, warns a Progressive Conservative Party riding association.
The president of the Cambridge Progressive Conservative Riding Association says it is "alarming" that the party's election-readiness committee is dominated by lobbyists, according to a copy of an e-mail obtained by The Globe and Mail.
