The offices of the Premier of Ontario and Mayor of Ottawa have no records relating to the man who led secret negotiations with convoy occupation leaders – Doug Ford's long-time personal friend and former Chief of Staff, Dean French.

The sensitive negotiations, which took place through a secret "backchannel" between French and convoy leader Tamara Lich, resulted in a triumphant announcement from Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson on February 13 that the City of Ottawa had brokered a deal with convoy leaders that would see convoy vehicles move out of residential areas and relocate to commercial areas near Parliament Hill.

The Watson-Lich accord did not go quite as planned.
