Doug Ford tilts the table away from Trudeau’s agenda

When Canada’s premiers gather in New Brunswick for their annual summer meetings this week, the main event undoubtedly will be the debut of Ontario Premier Doug Ford.

Officials from multiple provinces expect the country’s newest provincial leader to dominate the two days of meetings in scenic St. Andrews. “There’s no doubt people are waiting to see how Ford will act,” one official said. Another bluntly added: “I’m betting it’s going to be Fordapalooza.”
