Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford wrapped up the first day of the 2022 Ontario election campaign with a rally in Etobicoke on Wednesday night.

Ford, who grew up representing the riding of Etobicoke North, was greeted by a sea of ​​blue signs and cheering supporters as he rode to the Toronto Convention Center on his ‘Yes Express’ campaign bus ..

“Tonight, I am here to win your support, once again. Because the job is not done. In fact…we’re just getting started,” Ford said.

The PC leader touted a number of previously announced campaign promises, including pledges for new jobs in the electric vehicle sector, a commitment to build Highway 413 and investments in health care infrastructure.
