Doug Ford recorded trying to sell 'bogus' PC memberships, Liberals allege - 2018-05-24
The Ontario Liberals released an audio recording on Thursday that features Doug Ford allegedly trying to sell "bogus memberships" to help secure the nomination of the Progressive Conservative candidate in his home riding.
In the edited audio recording presented by Liberal campaign co-chair Deb Matthews, the PC leader is heard alongside Etobicoke Centre PC candidate Kinga Surma attempting to sign up new party members to support Surma in her nomination contest.
Matthews said the audio, which she said was recorded in an Etobicoke Tim Hortons in October 2016, when Ford was not leader of the party, was provided to the Liberal campaign by the man who recorded it. Matthews said the man wants to remain anonymous and would not divulge any further information about the provenance of the recording.
