On Wednesday morning Doug Ford attended an event entitled "Breakfast with Ontario's Premier Doug Ford." The function, sponsored by the Insurance Bureau of Canada, was billed as a "roundtable breakfast" with the premier. It was held at the offices of the CD Howe Institute in Toronto.

The institute is a non-profit public policy research organization funded by corporations and business people. The conversation with Ford touched on a number of news items including the carbon tax, deficit and other provincial matters.

Media were not informed of the event until 8:26 a.m. on Wednesday morning just 34 minutes before the 9:00 a.m. chat was scheduled to begin.
