Ontario's integrity commissioner says Premier Doug Ford did not breach conflict of interest rules during the appointment of his friend Ron Taverner as Ontario Provincial Police commissioner.

"I found that the Premier stayed at arm's length from the recruitment process and that he believed it to be independent," J. David Wake said in the report released on Wednesday.

But the report on the Taverner's selection does not fully exonerate the government. Wake said the appointment process itself was flawed and said there were "some troubling aspects of the recruitment process" — most notably communication between the then-secretary of the cabinet Steve Orsini and Dean French, Ford's chief of staff.
