Patrick Brown Broke the Ontario News Cycle - 2018-02-15
Within a few hours' span today, the following stories came out about former (we think) Ontario Progressive Conservative Party leader Patrick Brown: He is suing CTV for the reporting that lead to his resignation; sources say he didn't actually resign and he's still PC leader; and finally, Brown didn't know about the preceding story and he's not focused on "technicalities," whatever that means.
Brown resigned last month after CTV News reported two young women accused him of sexual misconduct. At the time, he issued a blanket denial about the alleged incidents, but quickly stepped down amid pressure from his party.
"After consulting with caucus, friends and family I have decided to step down as leader of the Ontario PC Party. I will remain on as a MPP while I definitively clear my name from these false allegations," he said.
