Ontario Premier Doug Ford has revoked two new appointments to his Progressive Conservative government who have close personal ties to his chief of staff.

Less than a day after the appointments were announced, a government source told The Globe and Mail on Friday that Mr. Ford revoked the appointments of Tyler Albrecht and Taylor Shields as new "agents-general" appointees to New York and London, positions that come with salaries between $165,000 and $185,000 plus expenses.

Mr. Albrecht, a 26-year-old recent university graduate and financial analyst, has ties to Mr. Ford's chief of staff, Dean French, through their mutual involvement in lacrosse. He is also friends with Mr. French's sons.
