Ron Taverner, who was supposed to be sworn in as the next commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police on Monday, is back on the job as a superintendent with the Toronto police, after he rescinded his resignation over the weekend.

Taverner, a close personal friend of Premier Doug Ford, asked that his appointment, marred by controversy, be delayed, while the process of his hiring is reviewed.

This comes after the Ontario ombudsman shut down a request from OPP Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair, who was also in the running to head the second-largest police force in Canada, to investigate the appointment.
