Wynne says Ford's pledge to fire Hydro One CEO shows he has no plan

Premier Kathleen Wynne says Doug Ford's promise to fire the CEO of Hydro One if elected this spring shows he has no plan to lead the province.

Wynne's comments come a day after Ford said his first act as premier would be to fire CEO Mayo Schmidt and board of directors of the partially privatized utility.

The newly minted Progressive Conservative leader said he would dump Schmidt because he presided over the dramatic increase of rates and earned a $6.2 million salary.

Wynne says everyone in the province should be worried if Ford's plan is an example of his approach to government policy, calling it ``bluster'' put forward in place of a plan.

She says voters don't know Ford's priorities yet because he has not released a platform.

Ontario's election is set for June 7.
