Ford orders public sector hiring freeze, excludes essential frontline staff

TORONTO — Ontario’s incoming premier has put the public service under a hiring freeze as part of a series of measures meant to limit spending as he re-examines the province’s books.

A spokesman for Doug Ford says the Progressive Conservative leader has also directed government ministries to cancel “subscription-based services” and to restrict out-of-province travel.

Simon Jefferies says the Tories will review government spending line by line to ensure taxpayers’ money is going to the services people rely on.

3 things Doug Ford’s win will hopefully mean for Ontario

Flare, self-described as “Canada’s Fashion Magazine,” recently put out an article titled, “3 Things Doug Ford’s Win May Mean for Millennial Women.” They should really just stick to fashion.

Ignore the green lobby, Doug Ford. Ontarians voted for affordable energy this time

…Liberal clownery on electricity prices almost defies description. Between 2008 and 2016, Ontario’s residential electricity costs grew by more than 70 per cent, doubling the average rate increase in the rest of the country over this time. Large industrial users also suffered, with costs in some cities spiking more than 50 per cent between 2010 and 2016. According to the provincial auditor-general, the Liberals’ fixation with subsidizing uneconomic renewable energy sources such as solar and wind meant Ontarians paid about $37 billion more than they should have for their electricity. In other words, Ontario’s high energy prices were caused by lousy policies.
