Late last night, like many Ontarians, I was shocked by what I heard. I shared my initial thoughts and waited to receive more information. Mr. Brown’s decision to step down as Party Leader, in order to deal with these very serious allegations, was the right choice.
The more I learn, the more I am deeply disturbed by the allegations of sexual misconduct against the former leader of the PC Party of Ontario. I offer my unreserved sympathy to these brave women who came forward. They, and all women who endure these horrible circumstances, have the right to be heard in a supportive environment and to seek justice. I have the utmost faith in our police and our courts.
Please rest assured that, despite these shocking allegations and Mr. Brown’s resignation, the Ontario PC Party is a strong, united front. We will continue preparing for the upcoming election. I am so blessed to be surrounded by an exceptional campaign team.
The people of Carleton have been my sole priority and sole focus since I began campaigning almost two years ago. That priority has not changed. I am working hard, and I will continue to work hard, to serve you.
