McNaughton will join the private sector
Ontario Labour Minister Monte McNaughton has announced he's leaving politics, and going into the private sector.
This comes one day after Premier Doug Ford said he's changing his plan to develop housing on parts of the Greenbelt.
McNaughton has been one of Ford's biggest allies. and has helped the government get more support from private sector unions in the construction industry.
He is the third cabinet minister to step down this month.
Steve Clark and Kaleed Rasheed resigned after a pair of scathing reports into the Greenbelt scandal.
