Ford blames Horwath for jeering crowd at plowing match - 2019-09-17
VERNER, Ont. - Premier Doug Ford picked a political fight with Ontario's opposition leader at a normally non-partisan rural expo Tuesday, accusing her of being behind a smattering of jeers he received at the event.
Ford lashed out at NDP Leader Andrea Horwath during a news conference at the International Plowing Match in Verner, Ont., making the accusations which she immediately denied.
Ford received a largely warm welcome from the rural crowd taking in the match 55 kilometres west of North Bay, Ont., but did receive a handful of boos as he prepared to deliver a speech during the event's opening ceremonies.
