Following a chaotic leadership convention that saw angry party members sent home before a leader was announced because the room was only booked until 7 pm, the brother of former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was unveiled as the new leader at an impromptu press conference held in the middle of the night in Markham, Ontario.

Ford now owes a debt of gratitude to hardline social conservative groups that have well-documented histories advocating for repressive laws targeting the rights and freedoms of women and LGBTQ Canadians, among others.

Campaign Life Coalition, Canada's biggest anti-abortion organization and a source of homophobic conspiracy theories about Ontario schools pushing a so-called "gay agenda," issued a press release taking credit for Ford's leadership win.
