Following an auditor general's report that found Ontario's pandemic response is being driven by political staff atop a command structure developed by a U.S. consulting agency, Premier Doug Ford is insisting that medical experts and Ontario's top doctor are calling the shots.

A tough-talking Ford fired back at Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk Wednesday after her report raised questions about how the government is making crucial decisions on lockdowns, school closures and other measures that are affecting the lives and livelihoods of millions of Ontarians.

"To say that [[[:Category:Chief Medical Officer of Health|Chief Medical Officer of Health]]] Dr. Williams wasn't leading this response, it just isn't right. It's actually wrong," Ford said at his daily media briefing.
