In a letter to party members in his eastern Ontario riding, Randy Hillier claims he wasn't suspended for comments he made in the legislature, as Premier Doug Ford has said, but due to long-standing tensions with two of Ford's senior advisers over what's expected of caucus members.

Hillier, a veteran Tory legislator known for being outspoken, says he challenged the justification for his suspension and was given a list of what he called "questionable and childish grievances" by backroom operatives.

Among them, he alleges, were complaints that he didn't clap enough in the House and wasn't actively sharing posts about the government's activities on social media.
