Patrick Brown says he's suing CTV over sexual misconduct allegations

Brown resigned at 1:25 a.m. on January 25, hours after CTV News reported on sexual misconduct allegations.

Earlier Friday, Brown was removed from the PC caucus by interim leader Vic Fedeli.

The broadcaster said the accusations from two women, which have not been verified by The Canadian Press, dated back to Brown's time as a federal MP.

CTV said it stood by its stories. Brown described the "false allegations" reported by CTV as "character assassination".

He has also vowed to sue the network, which said it stands by its reporting.

But it is not for him that I call attention to the scheming and the slanders against him - it in the name of fair play and justice and to call out political and media schemers who have weaponized the #MeToo anti-sexual harassment movement for their own personal gain, and to the destruction of a man who seems not to have done what they said he did.

Parents "are our first educators when it comes to our children", he said, echoing social conservatives who fought the Liberal government on the changes before they were finally implemented in the fall of 2015.

"Here is my message to CTV News".

Oklahoma records first flu-related pediatric death of season
Tragically, an Upper Peninsula child died from the flu earlier this month, according to a story in Crain's Detroit Business. WDGPH will be holding additional flu shot clinics over the next week in Guelph , Fergus and Orangeville.

"I don't know who's behind this".

Fedeli previously said that he believed the complainants. But what I can tell you is in that period I found strength. But if they can set up two women, what would stop them from setting up another? Last month, in separate interviews with CTV News and CBC News, both of which agreed not to reveal her identity, the woman said she was very drunk when Brown invited her up to his bedroom and began kissing her. "And frankly, I'm anxious that if they could do this to me, who else could they do this to?"

This version of events, however, appeared to be contradicted on Friday by a Toronto Star report which released an audio recording of Brown telling his caucus during a conference call that he would resign.

Re-opening the issue will undoubtedly win votes and seats for the PC party but it also risks bringing out the fissures in society, pitting the more conservative parents against the reality of the times we live in.

Wynne is now contending with historically low approval ratings as her party deals with backlash on issues ranging from energy prices to minimum wage rates.

Ontario PC leadership contenders Christine Elliott and Caroline Mulroney say they would wait until "the facts" are in before deciding the future of former leader Patrick Brown in the party.

In that interview, Brown contended that a resignation letter was sent out on his behalf "without" his permission and that he didn't know what he "would have done the next day".

Doug Ford and Parents as First Educators president Tanya Granic Allen - now running to be the leader of the Conservatives heading into this summer's provincial election.
