Ontario Premier Doug Ford is starting to make changes to his inner circle, with a former aide to his late brother becoming principal secretary as more staff announce they are leaving for the private sector.
The Globe and Mail has learned that Amin Massoudi, a former communications director to late Toronto mayor Rob Ford, has been named as a senior aide to the Premier as he enters his second year in government.
"We're excited to announce Amin Massoudi has assumed the role of principal secretary to the Premier. His leadership in the Premier's Office has played a critical role in advancing our government's goal of improving quality of government services and making life more affordable for individuals and families in Ontario," the Premier's Office said in a statement to The Globe.
