Ontario bringing back 90’s-era positions in U.S., U.K. to promote the province

Ontario has appointed four people to positions abroad to drum up business in the province, including a former aide to Premier Doug Ford’s brother and a former president of the Progressive Conservative party.

The four agents-general will be based in London, Chicago, Dallas and New York City, and paid between $165,000 and $185,000. In a statement, Ford says the four will help increase investment and jobs in Ontario.
The government says it may appoint up to four more agents-general.

Today’s appointees include Earl Provost, who served as chief of staff to Ford’s late brother Rob Ford when he was mayor of Toronto, and Jag Badwal, who is a past president of the Ontario PC Party.

Agents-general positions have not existed in Ontario’s government since the 1990s.
