What Next For Ford?

Expect moves to cut the deficit, scrap workplace reforms. and attack Justin Trudeau.

Premier Doug Ford isn’t being humble in describing his first 100 days in office. He says his new government has taken “action the likes of which Canada has never seen before.”

So, what will he do for an encore?

It’s unlikely the Ford government can keep up the breakneck pace of its first 100 days, when it moved quickly to scrap pretty much anything the Liberals left behind that wasn’t firmly set into political concrete. Tackling other parts of the 15-year Liberal legacy — and starting to build his own — will take Ford more time.

Here are the key things you can expect to see in the next 100 days.

Employment laws

Ford clearly has Bill 148 in his sights. These are the workplace reforms passed under the Wynne government that grant all employees a minimum of two paid sick days, and force employers to pay casual and part-time workers at the same rate as full-time staff if they’re doing the same job.

Ford’s ministers of labour and economic development insist they are still consulting Ontarians about what to do about Bill 148. But Ford seems to have his own mind made up already.
