Passing of Diane Ford, mother of Doug Ford

Chairment Statement Picture

On behalf of York Regional Council and the 1.2 million residents of The Regional Municipality of York, I offer sincere condolences to Premier Doug Ford on the loss of his mother, Diane Ford.

As the matriarch of the Ford family, Ms. Ford has been at the forefront of a political family. At the same time, she has been there always for her immediate family.

Ms. Ford also supported many charitable causes, while being a fixture within the Etobicoke community where she and her family have long called home.

Our prayers are with Premier Ford and his family during this difficult time.
