TRILLIUM TALK: Doug Ford promised to 'Get it Done' if re-elected. Has he?

Every Sunday morning, one of our legislative reporters from The Trillium provides an inside look at the week that was in Ontario politics — and the week ahead

Welcome back to Trillium Talk, your must-see briefing from Village Media’s team of journalists at the Ontario Legislature. 

Every Sunday, Scott Sexsmith sits down with one of our staffers at The Trillium to talk about the week that was at Queen's Park — and the week ahead.

Joining us today is Editor-in-Chief Jessica Smith Cross, who recaps some of the major headlines in provincial politics — including the war of words that erupted between two college presidents, and a major court ruling regarding the Ford government's controversial wage cap on public sector workers.

She also offers a sneak peek at a new poll conducted for The Trillium by Pallas Data, which shows a narrowing lead for Doug Ford's Conservatives over Bonnie Crombie's Liberals.

The poll specifically asked respondents if the government is living up to its campaign promises to govern "For the People" and to "Get it Done" on housing, building roads and transit, health care, education, the economy, and liberalizing alcohol sales.

Look for a full story on the poll results Monday morning across our Village Media chain of local news sites.
