TORONTO—Ontario's opposition parties are accusing Premier Doug Ford of acting in the interest of his friends and supporters by creating new jobs and substantially increasing the pay for other jobs that end up going to people he knows.

The charge follows a report from iPolitics that the $270,000 per year job at the Ontario Cannabis Store that was created for Ford's friend Ron Taverner wasn't filled after he turned it down.

"It just shows that Doug Ford was searching around for spots for his cronies to land. And when that particular crony didn't need that position, the position suddenly wasn't that important to be filled," NDP Leader Andrea Horwath told reporters Tuesday.
