As calls for a conflict-of-interest investigation into a public appointments scandal rocking Premier Doug Ford's government continue to grow, Ontario's Integrity Commissioner says he is prevented by law from releasing his findings publicly.

Liberal Leader John Fraser sent a letter to commissioner J. David Wake asking for an investigation into Ford's chief-of-staff Dean French, who resigned in June over two patronage appointment with personal ties.

Taylor Shields, the cousin of French's wife, and Tyler Albrect, a friend of French's son, were both given high-paying agent general appointments in the U.K. and the U.S. on the very day the Ford government announced a cabinet reset. The jobs came with compensation packages of between $164,910 and $185,000 a year for three year terms.
