MPP Randy Hillier says he was ousted from the PC caucus after raising allegations about "possible illegal and unregistered lobbying" by Premier Doug Ford's friends and advisers — and the NDP is now calling on the Ontario Provincial Police to investigate.

Ford's office called all of Hillier's allegations "absurd and categorically false."

In a statement issued Monday, Hillier alleges Ford Chief of Staff Dean French and Chris Froggatt, who heads the election readiness committee, "engaged in an underhanded and relentless campaign" for months to get rid of him.
