On June 7th 2018, Ontarians chose Doug Ford to be Ontario's 26th Premier.

"No matter what, you can count on me to give you straight talk. I've spent my entire career telling it like it is. I'm going to be up front and honest about what I'm going to do. And I'm going to do what I say I'm going to do.

"This also means that I won't make reckless promises. When I make a promise — I keep it. Period."

—Doug Ford, Plan for the People
