Canadian actor upset at Ontario Premier Doug Ford

Canadian actor Kiefer Sutherland wants Ontario Premier Doug Ford to stop using his late grandfather Tommy Douglas’s name and image as part of what he calls his ”political agenda.”

Sutherland’s request is in response to a recent tweet by Ford, in which he shared an op-ed penned by one of his cabinet ministers comparing the Ford government’s fiscal policies to that of Tommy Douglas. Sutherland says while his grandfather was fiscally responsible, his accomplishments didn’t come at the expense of social and human services to those in need.
