It is time to turn the ship of government around, stop the Liberals’ reckless spending, and make Ontario a great place to live and do business in.
That was the message from Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford, speaking at the Dugout Grill in east end Belleville Wednesday morning.
Ford continued to hammer away at what he called the “millionaires club” at Hydro One for lavishing bonuses on themselves.

Ford told the capacity crowd at the Dugout in Belleville things will change if his party is elected June 7th.
PC leader Ford was also in downtown Trenton today officially opening MPP Todd Smith’s campaign office.
But Ford did face some resistance during his visit today.
Unionized CUPE workers, including early childhood educators, educational assistants, custodians and more made themselves known to Ford at both his stop in Belleville and the opening of Smith’s campaign office.
They protested about Ford’s plan to cut 4% from Ontario’s overall education budget.
Meanwhile, the Liberals put out a release this morning criticizing Smith for having ford at his office opening, after openly warning party members to steer clear of voting for him in the leadership race.
In March, Smith told the National Post that he felt ford was “erratic and out of control” and that the behavior would “lead the party to certain defeat”.
