He shook up provincial politics and is doing the same down the street at Toronto City Hall.
Doug Ford’s announced a plan that, if passed, would reduce the number of councillors from 47 to 25.
Mayor John Tory is opposed, saying you don’t change the rules in the middle of the game. 
Nearly a dozen current city councillors, including Ford’s nephew Michael Ford, support the plan.
Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath calls it ”undemocratic”.
The plan would also cancel democratic elections for regional chairs in Peel, York, Niagara and Muskoka.
Former PC leader Patrick Brown, who was seeking the regional chair’s job in Peel, has now entered the race for mayor of Brampton.
And Toronto’s former chief planner, Jennifer Keesmaat, is looking to beat Tory for top job in the city.
Doug Ford denies his plan is an attempt to settle political scores with Brown and Tory, who defeated him in the last mayoral race.
