Down in the polls, Ford says Ontarians want him to 'keep going, ignore the media' - 2019-07-30
Down in the polls and scrambling to regroup after a rocky start to summer for his 13-month-old government, Premier Doug Ford insists Ontarians are behind him.
"The people out there when I go from town to town — and I'm all over the province — people come up to me and the number one comment is: 'keep going, ignore the media,'" Ford told Lorne Brooker at Belleville's CJBQ radio on Tuesday.
"It's not you — I wish more media outlets were like you — but to put it into perspective we're up against some of the largest unions in the country that have had their hands in the taxpayer's pocket for 15 years," the premier continued.
"We're up against the special interest groups again. They have their hands in the cookie jar as they say, we're pulling their hands out and … starting to respect the taxpayers," he said.
