Ford backs South Niagara hospital

Supporters welcomed PC Leader Doug Ford last night at a rally in the falls.

After a whirlwind tour of Niagara, Ford addressed a crowd of more than 200 at the Marriot on the Falls to bolster the campaign of Niagara Falls PC candidate Chuck McShane.

Ford telling the crowd he wants to "put a shovel in the ground for the new hospital."

He also reiterated promised to reduce taxes for the middle class, repeal the sex education curriculum in schools and protect frontline workers from layoffs.

McShane took aim at NDP incumbent Wayne Gates saying it’s unacceptable that nothing has come from the promises that Gates has made adding the Fort Erie racetrack is on life support.

McShane says if elected he will make more than just promises he will get results.
