Former Barrie MPP Rod Jackson: Patrick Brown adviser 'threatened' my political career - 2018-03-08
Brown quit as party leader Jan. 25 after being accused by two unidentified women of sexual misconduct. He entered the race for his old job after suggesting his name had been cleared, but withdrew after 10 days.
In February, the chief financial officer in each of the two PC riding associations with direct ties to Brown — Simcoe North, where he currently serves as MPP, and Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte, where he's the nominated candidate for June's provincial election — stepped aside. Party officials told Simcoe.com there was "no untoward reason" behind the CFO decisions.
Const. Nicole Rodgers said the Barrie "threats" investigation was thorough.
