Poll: Premier Acting On Most Voters' Priorities

Bayshore Broadcasting News asked what you feel Premier Doug Ford should address first

Progressive Conservative Premier Doug Ford seems to be acting on most of the priorities Ontarians want focus on, during his party's first few weeks in power.

In our latest online poll, Bayshore Broadcasting News asked what issues you feel Ford should address first.

33 per cent of respondents suggested lower hydro rates be a focus.

In his second day in office, Ford dismissed the CEO of Hydro One, citing Mayo Schmidt's salary as an example of wasteful spending.

Ford also cancelled hundreds of future wind energy projects, saying reliance on other power sources would cut down costs.

22 per cent of voters cited hospital wait times as a key priority for the province, while 17 per cent pointed to the abolishing of Ontario's cap and trade plan to curb carbon emissions.

The Premier says he is committed to ending cap and trade, while Ottawa is threatening to impose a carbon tax on province's without a carbon-reducing plan in place.

Lowering taxes and job creation came in with 10 per cent of the vote, with housing and tuition prices following.
