A former high-ranking Ontario police officer is expected to address the media on Friday for the first time since his lawyer alleged the Ford government engaged in an "abuse of power" when he was fired.

Brad Blair, who served as the deputy commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police, was a sharp critic of Premier Doug Ford's appointment of Ron Taverner — a long-time friend of Ford — to OPP commissioner.

Taverner, a long-time Toronto police officer, ultimately turned down the position amid a rise in public concern over possible political patronage.
