Doug Ford takes direct aim at Justin Trudeau

Doug Ford celebrated his first 100 days as Ontario premier with a verbal barrage aimed at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Speaking to about 600 supporters at a provincial Progressive Conservative rally at a Woodbine banquet hall Tuesday night, Ford repeatedly attacked Trudeau’s federal Liberals.

“We’ve taken (former Liberal premier) Kathleen Wynne’s hand out of your pocket … and we’re going to take Justin Trudeau’s hand out of your pocket,” the premier said to cheers from an adoring crowd that included 29 PC ministers and MPPs and dozens of Tory staffers.
