Doug Ford heads into Ontario’s election year with a lead, but much uncertainty
As winter takes hold in Ontario, the spring election undoubtedly feels a long way away — but with campaigning officially beginning in little more than four months, the province’s political parties are ramping up preparations.
Premier Doug Ford will seek re-election during the month-long campaign that culminates in voting day on June 2.
