The Ontario government's first "strategic transformation advisor" was abruptly fired Thursday night as the Toronto Star revealed his long-time ties to Premier Doug Ford's former chief of staff, Dean French, who left government two weeks ago amid a cronyism scandal.

Peter Fenwick, a senior bureaucrat in the cabinet office, was dismissed "effective immediately" by the province's top civil servant, Steven Davidson.

Davidson said the decision followed an evaluation of the role created last fall to help government departments become more efficient.
