TORONTO – An Ontario cabinet minister says Premier Doug Ford is disappointed that a series of provincial appointees were found to have personal ties to his ex-chief of staff.

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

Opposition parties are calling for the review to be done outside the premier's office, such as by the integrity commissioner or a legislative committee.
