A publisher says Ontario Finance Minister Vic Fedeli has demanded a full retraction of allegations of sexual misconduct that Patrick Brown made in his tell-all book. Dean Baxendale says the finance minister’s lawyers served both him and Brown with a notice of libel.
Brown, who resigned as party leader last year amid allegations of sexual misconduct that he denies, portrays himself in his book as a victim of a conspiracy led by senior Tory officials. The book also made allegations against several key members of the Tory government, including Fedeli, whom Brown said faced accusations of “inappropriate behavior” by a party staffer in December 2017.
