CORNWALL, Ontario – Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Doug Ford made a brief stop in Cornwall on April 17.

The Tuesday morning stop at the Ramada Inn was packed with supporters.

The event was hosted by Progressive Conservative MPP for Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry Jim McDonell.

In his address to the crowd, Ford hit many of the campaign messages that he has hit upon across the province.

“I can tell you that Kathleen Wynne has zero, zero respect for taxpayers,” he said. “You put your hand in your left pocket and there’s Kathleen Wynne, you put your hand in your right pocket and in your other pocket is Justin Trudeau.”

“The government doesn’t create jobs, the government creates the environment to create jobs,” Ford said to a round of applause from the crowd.

The meeting wrapped up with Ford walking around the room shaking hands with supporters. Jim McDonell gave the party leader a gift of cheese from Glengarry Fine Cheese.
