Ontario Premier Doug Ford took time out of his work days to film taxpayer-funded videos that have been criticized as partisan propaganda on at least 100 occasions during his first year in power.

A Canadian Press analysis of a year's worth of Ontario News Now videos found that Ford filmed with them on close to a third of the days in his first year as premier.

The premier's office said he usually spends less than five minutes at a time on ONN filming and defended the use of time and did not dispute the estimate.
