OTTAWA—Premier Doug Ford's government has tapped Ottawa for only $11 million or 17 per cent of an available pot of $65 million that the federal government set aside for Ontario to combat illegal guns and gangs, says Bill Blair.

Blair, the former Toronto police chief now minister in charge of border security and organized crime, told a parliamentary committee that Ontario is eligible for $65 million over five years, to come out of a $214-million five-year fund.

That's more than 30 per cent of the money available for all provinces and territories.
