A teachers' union representative claiming responsibility for an anti-Ford sign that flew over Ford Fest said he had to hire an American company because the Canadian one he approached refused to participate.

David Clegg, president of the York Region local of the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario, said he paid for the plane to fly over Ford Fest carrying a sign that read "Public education cannot afford Ford," because he wanted to send a message to attendees of the annual barbecue, which was once a Ford family event but is now sponsored by the Progressive Conservative party.
