Premier Doug Ford thanks Andrew Scheer for service as federal Tory leader steps down - 2019-12-12
TORONTO – Doug Ford wished Andrew Scheer all the best Thursday after the federal Conservative leader announced his resignation – but Ontario's populist premier will not be among those vying for the job.
Ford stuck to pleasantries after Scheer announced he will step down as Conservative leader as soon as a successor can be chosen. He will stay on as an MP.
"I wish Andrew Scheer all the best as he undertakes this new chapter in his life, and thank him for his service as the head of her Majesty's Loyal Opposition and leader of the Conservative Party," Ford wrote.
