Ontario Premier Doug Ford has made good on another election promise.
The speech - written by the premier's office and read by Lt. Gov. Elizabeth Dowdeswell at the Ontario legislature - set out a road map for the new Progressive Conservative government's term, pledging to cut taxes, provide long-term funding for the health-care system and slash government waste.

"Absolutely not, I'm here today, I'm taking questions", he said.
The money was to be paid out from revenues of the cap-and-trade system, which Ford began dismantling nearly immediately after taking office, as he had promised to do.
The sex-ed curriculum will be replaced with one that is based on "real" consultations with parents, the speech says.
