If Conservative leader Andrew Scheer was banking on Premier Doug Ford keeping his head down until after the fall federal election, his hopes have likely now been dashed.

Ford gave a speech at the Association of Ontario Municipalities conference in Ottawa on Monday, where he talked about everything the province was doing for municipalities, including increasing funding for ambulance services by 4 per cent this year.

But more interesting was what Ford didn't talk about: the major funding cuts to municipal child care and public health programs to begin in January that government officials were putting in place behind the scenes.
