Months after going public with his concerns about the appointment of Premier Doug Ford's close friend Ron Taverner as the next commissioner of the OPP, the force's deputy commissioner Brad Blair, who was also in the running for the job, was fired this week.

Now Blair is threatening to sue the government for wrongful dismissal and plans to "seek full accountability and compensation for the actions leading to his termination."

"The OPP can be called in to investigate provincial politicians, and the citizens of Ontario need to have faith that the OPP is truly independent, above political interference, and free from abuses of power," said Blair, adding that "the cost of a compromised OPP is too great a price to pay."
