About Doug Ford, Jr.

Douglas Bruce Ford Jr. (born November 20, 1964), known commonly as Doug Ford, is a Canadian businessman and politician who is the current leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, since 10 March 2018. He is the older brother of the late Mayor of Toronto Rob Ford.

Ford was Toronto City Councillor for Ward 2 Etobicoke North in Toronto from 2010 to 2014 at the same time that his brother, Rob Ford, was mayor of Toronto. Their father, Doug Ford Sr., was a Member of Provincial Parliament from 1995 to 1999 and founded Deco Labels and Tags, a printing business operating in Canada and the United States. The business is now owned by Doug Ford Jr., who has served as company president since 2002, and his brother, Randy.

Ford ran for the 2014 Toronto mayoral election where he placed second behind John Tory. In 2017, Ford announced his candidacy for the 2018 Toronto mayoral election but announced in January 2018 he would no longer run for mayor in order to run for the 2018 PC leadership race, which was triggered by the resignation of Patrick Brown due to sexual misconduct allegations. On March 10, 2018, he closely defeated Christine Elliott on the third ballot to win the race. After Ford's election as PC leader, former interim PC leader Vic Fedeli continues to serve as Leader of the Official Opposition in Ontario as Ford does not currently have a seat in the Ontario Legislature.
