Ontario Premier Doug Ford and Toronto Mayor John Tory were all smiles on Thursday as they got set to hold a meeting discussing a wide range of topics including transit and keeping Canadian safe.

The meeting comes a day after Toronto city council voted to double its office staffing budgets to accommodate the constituency workload anticipated when the Ford government shrunk the size of council from 47 to 25 seats just weeks before the municipal election.

In an interview with Global News in September, Ford said his relationship with Tory and council was “not damaged at all.”
