Untangling The Reporting On Patrick Brown
Untangling The Reporting On Patrick Brown
CANADALAND has learned new details about a third accuser whose allegations CTV chose not to report, more about the alleged victims’ relationships with CTV reporters, and an ostensible witness that Patrick Brown hoped to bring to his press conference

On the night of January 24th, a CTV News report containing allegations of sexual misconduct led to the resignation of Patrick Brown as leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario and Official Opposition at Queen’s Park.

But following the brief, awkward statement he delivered to reporters that evening, Brown remained largely silent about the allegations that upended the province’s political landscape — until last week, that is, when he launched a campaign to challenge both the substance and form of CTV’s reporting. Since then, he has been anything but quiet, working every available channel to cast doubt on the allegations and lay the groundwork for a last-minute entry into the leadership race to succeed himself.
