Patrick Brown's first comments since stepping down: "The truth will come out"
Former PC leader Patrick Brown has tweeted for the first time since stepping down as leader almost two weeks ago.
In his message, he writes, "The truth will come out."
I am immensely grateful for all the support expressed to my family and myself. #metoo can be a tool to lift society and I applaud that effort.— Patrick Brown (@brownbarrie) February 6, 2018
False allegations however undermine that good work.
The truth will come out.
Thank you to all.
On January 24, Brown held a press conference at Queen's Park, denying allegations of sexual misconduct. Several hours later, he announced that he resigned as party leader.
The party is currently searching for a new leader. So far, former MPP Christine Elliott, former councillor Doug Ford, and York-Simcoe PC candidate Caroline Mulroney have announced they are running for the position.
