The director of communications for former PC leader Tim Hudak writes in The Toronto Sun that the government would be smart to take the advice of OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas.

"I have a lot of time for Warren (Smokey) Thomas, president of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union which represents tens of thousands of front-line civil servants in the province. Ford would be wise to listen to him," writes Sun columnist Mark Bonokoski.

"Thomas argues that, if Ford wants to start somewhere, he and Finance Minister Vic Fedeli should zero in on the management side of government. And he is not wrong."
