Michael Ford joins cabinet as Minister of Multiculturalism

Michael Ford, our MPP and the premier’s nephew, has been made the Minister of Citizenship and Multiculturalism. He immediately faced accusations that he had got the job through nepotism.

The NDP took issue with his appointment, saying “we have a lot of BIPOC folks wondering… there are plenty of people, people of colour, in Ford’s caucus that could take that position. And he chose to appoint his nephew. And, as we all know, the qualifications there are dubious.” Ford is 28 years old and white.

Michael Ford told CityNews, “I totally dismiss that. I’ve been elected to Toronto District School board, I have served on Toronto City Council for a number of years, representing one of the the most diverse communities in one of the most diverse cities in the world.”
