First Patrick Brown was vying to be premier, then he was out. Then he jumped back into the race to become PC leader again, then he was out.
Brown may well have gotten a raw deal from CTV with their report on women who claimed he acted in a sexually inappropriate manner toward them.
Maybe, all this aside, you are or were a loyal supporter and thought the People’s Guarantee was the most important political document since the Magna Carta, but after the last month the question must be asked – is this man delusional?
Even Brown’s four-page resignation letter is itself a work of delusion. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t consider the timeline of his resignation.
One day before his latest announcement, it was revealed the Ethics Commissioner will investigate Brown due to a complaint from PC MPP Randy Hillier questioning how he could afford the mortgage on his $2.3M house and allegations that he violated rules for MPPs in failing to declare all sources of income.
Then there’s the smouldering dumpster fire that is the Hamilton West-Ancaster-Dundas riding.
In the delusional world of Patrick Brown, these damning events are merely coincidental to him stepping down. He’s just doing what’s right for the party, his family and friends. Is anyone buying this?
But there’s got to be someone even MORE delusional than Patrick Brown and that would be whoever put up the now forfeited $100K deposit for his entry into the race!
