A recent report by Global News found a fleet of lobbyists and developers were invited to a Stag & Doe last August for the daughters of Ford, where they were “browbeaten” into making $1000 donations. While they have not been individually identified, the Ontario integrity commissioner confirmed the developers were “personal friends” of Ford. At this point are weddings and backyard barbecues in Etobicoke the only way to get an ear from Ontario’s premier? And why would Ford need a Stag & Doe? All this on Wag the Doug today.
