Premier Doug Ford's office says "Ontario News Now" is here to stay, but Global News has learned through a party source a "reconfiguration" of the social media brand is being considered.

The controversial video content, used to promote government policies and decisions, is delivered on a number of platforms including YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.

Most recently, the NDP called for Ontario News Now to be shut down after it was revealed a video promoting Pelee Island Winery was produced despite the fact the president of the winery was a PC party doner.
