Ontario's newly elected Ford government flip-flopped on whether to cancel elections for heads of regional governments just days before making the surprise announcement last year.

Government documents obtained by The Globe and Mail show that in the span of one week in July, 2018, Premier Doug Ford's government repeatedly changed course on the votes, leaving bureaucrats scrambling.

In the end, the government eliminated regional chair elections in Peel, York, Niagara and Muskoka, where candidates had already begun campaigning.
