TORONTO – The lawyer for a former high-ranking provincial police officer alleges the Ontario government engaged in an abuse of power when it fired his client earlier this week.

Julian Falconer says the province could have demoted Brad Blair from his role of deputy commissioner at the Ontario Provincial Police instead of firing him outright and says his client had no opportunity to defend himself.

Blair alleges he was targeted by the government for waging a legal battle over the hiring of a long-time friend of Premier Doug Ford as head of the force.
