BROWN PLANS BOOK ON HIS ‘PO­LIT­I­CAL AS­SAS­SI­NA­TION’

EX-TORY LEADER

The Sun Times (Owen Sound) - - NATIONAL -

The scan­dal-plagued for­mer leader of On­tario’s Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tive party is writ­ing a tell-all book de­tail­ing what he de­scribes as his “po­lit­i­cal as­sas­si­na­tion.” Patrick Brown says the new book, ti­tled Take Down, will chron­i­cle his nearly three years at the helm of the party and of­fer a de­tailed look at the events that led up to his res­ig­na­tion in Jan­uary. Two women came for­ward with al­le­ga­tions of sexual mis­con­duct against Brown, who de­nies their claims and has filed a defama­tion suit. His res­ig­na­tion months be­fore a pro­vin­cial elec­tion trig­gered a lead­er­ship con­ven­tion that elected Doug Ford. Brown says his book will be “a story of be­trayal, black­mail, and back­room pol­i­tick­ing in­volv­ing some of Canada’s big­gest po­lit­i­cal names,” though he did not pro­vide de­tails. .
