StarMetro Toronto - - TORONTO - Kevin Dono­van CHIEF IN­VES­TIGA­TIVE RE­PORTER

On­tario’s new top cop, Ron Tav­erner, pur­chased a Toronto home pri­vately last year from one of Premier Doug Ford’s clos­est ad­vis­ers in both pol­i­tics and busi­ness.

Prop­erty records show that Tav­erner, the in­com­ing On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice com­mis­sioner and a cur­rent Toronto po­lice su­per­in­ten­dent, bought the three-bed­room, cot­tage- style home on Church St. in the Toronto neigh­bour­hood of We­ston in July 2017 for $550,000.

The seller was Si­mone Daniels, 33, a po­lit­i­cal oper­a­tive who has had a decade-long as­so­ci­a­tion with Ford and is de­scribed in a Ford press re­lease as “a long­time ad­viser.”
