In an internal caucus email obtained by the Star, the premier's office is reminding Tory members to come to the Markham fairgrounds on June 22 to "celebrate our historic year with family, food and fun!"

As Progressive Conservative MPPs privately complain to Premier Doug Ford about a "culture of fear" amid tongue lashings from his chief of staff, they are being urged to attend his annual "Ford Fest."

Nerves are frayed in the PC caucus after the Star revealed Wednesday that Ford's chief of staff, Dean French, loudly scolded a female MPP on June 6 outside an airport hotel in front of the premier, other members and staffers.
