NDP statement on Ford’s $1,000-a-burger fundraiser in North Bay

Published on July 6, 2021

QUEEN’S PARK — NDP Ethics and Accountability critic Taras Natyshak released the following statement on Doug Ford’s $1,000-a-burger fundraiser to be held Monday in North Bay, the first in-person fundraiser of the pandemic:

“The pandemic isn’t over, but Doug Ford has long-since turned his attention to prioritize collecting thousands in donations from his rich insiders and lobbyists. There aren’t too many regular folks willing to pay $1,000 for a burger and a pop — but Ford is happy to focus on the ultra-wealthy who are willing and able to shell out $1,000 per person for access.”

Monday’s luncheon is one of at least four PC Party fundraisers this week.
