Patrick Brown is entering the Ontario PC party leadership race on Friday afternoon.
In recent days, the Barrie region MPP and former party leader committed to taking CTV to court and passed a lie detector test.
Although on the same morning, interim leader Vic Fedeli removed Brown from the PC caucus, where he had remained as an MPP following his resignation as leader.
Important Note: Some local supporters and grassroots leaders had held out from supporting any of the current candidates. Those same leaders could come out and support a Brown Candidacy.
CTV Note: The CTV has stated that it continues to support its reporting and sources behind the Brown story.
