Ontario Premier Doug Ford is offering a glimpse of his strategy for winning a second term in office, more two years before the next election. In a speech to Progressive Conservative party members in Niagara Falls this weekend, Ford reeled off figures about the health of Ontario’s economy and went on the political offensive — but not against the official opposition NDP. Ford’s target was the Ontario Liberal Party, which holds just six seats in the legislature and remains without a leader until its convention on March 7. Ford attacked the leadership candidates with a tone that suggests — regardless of who the Liberals choose — that he will run in 2022 on a similar message as in 2018.
