Just one month after starting to distribute a new blue license plate, the Ford government returns to 2020 to the traditional white plate used in Ontario since the 1980s.
The reason: the new blue plate is difficult to read in the evening, warned a police officer, in particular, on social media.
According to documents obtained by CBC , the government had ignored warnings from the Ministry of Transport about the blue plate.
The province passes a law in 2022 to impose an employment contract on education workers and prevent them from striking and uses the notwithstanding provision of the Canadian Charter to block any legal recourse.
Despite the special law, the 55,000 teaching assistants, janitors and administrative employees of schools decide to strike.
Criticized from all sides, including by his federal counterpart Justin Trudeau, Doug Ford finally turned around and renounced using the notwithstanding provision in exchange for the return to work of education workers.
Last October, Municipal Affairs Minister Paul Calandra reversed his predecessor's decision to modify the urban plans of 12 cities and regional municipalities, to include more land where residential construction is permitted.
In some cases, there was too much intervention from certain individuals in Minister [Clark's] office, Calandra admits.
The Ford government announces a reform of the provincial autism program in February 2019. The objective: to relieve waiting lists.
However, many parents complain of receiving an inadequate amount or no help at all. The province finally reversed course, but many stakeholders still complain about failures in the system.
Parents of an autistic child even say they left Ontario because of waiting lists.
The province announced cuts to public health in 2019 as a budgetary restriction measure.
Many cities, including Toronto, are going up to the barricades. The Queen City anticipates a shortfall of $1 billion over 10 years.
After offering one-time additional amounts to public health units during the pandemic, the Ford government finally announces this year that it will fund them at 75%.
The 2019 budget contained a $133 million cut to the legal aid budget, or 30 per cent of provincial funding. Additional cuts of 31 million were planned in the following two years.
Eight months later, however, the government announced the cancellation of these cuts additional.
The Ford government announced in the spring of 2019 that the average high school class size would increase from 22 to 28 students and that each student would be required to take four online courses to obtain your diploma.
Faced with popular outcry and difficult negotiations with teachers, Education Minister Stephen Lecce finally puts water in its wine and reduces the class size to 25 students, in addition to setting the number of compulsory online courses at two rather than four.
