Doug Ford hits the campaign trail but rules out a snap election call.
Premier Doug Ford is hitting the campaign trail, but he’s ruling out an early election call to cash in on a bump in the polls over his government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an interview with the Star on Tuesday, Ford was asked if his province-wide summer tour is to set the stage for a snap vote this fall.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford now has a 39 percent approval, a swing of 88 percentage points, according to a recent poll. CHRIS YOUNG/THE CANADIAN PRESS
