TORONTO -- Ontario's opposition parties called Wednesday for a review of all government appointments to be handled outside of Premier Doug Ford's office, after three were found to have personal ties to his ex-chief of staff.

Ford ordered a review Tuesday of all pending government appointments, days after Dean French resigned following news that appointees to two foreign posts were personally connected to him, and just hours after a third connection was revealed.

Both the NDP and the Liberals say that a review should include all appointments made since the Progressive Conservative government came to power last year, not just pending ones, and it should not be handled by the same people who signed off on them in the first place.
