Nine months after vowing major municipal reforms, Premier Doug Ford's government is abandoning its "top-down approach" to regional government.

Municipal Affairs Minister Steve Clark announced the Tories' latest climbdown on Friday saying Queen's Park will instead give Ontario's 444 municipalities $143 million to find efficiencies and improve services.

"Municipalities are the level of government closest to the people, but every community is different — one size doesn't fit all," said Clark.
