It is mathematically impossible for Doug Ford to keep his election promises to cut taxes but not spending while eliminating the deficit. So it will be interesting to watch him repudiate those promises. I see that this process has already begun. From The Toronto Star at:

“I always keep my promises,” said Ford. “We aren’t going to flip-flop.” He added one caveat, however: “First of all, we have to look at the books.”

One of the oldest political tricks is for a new government to say: "Now that we have had a chance to look at the books, we found out that the previous government messed things up so bad that we cannot implement our promises."

Of course, the public accounts are openly published and audited by the Auditor-General. So just what exactly is there to be found?
