ONE on One with Possibly the Next Mayor of Brampton, Patrick Brown
A look back at our talk with Patrick Brown—and his political comeback—from July 2018
On Thursday, July 26, news broke that Premier Doug Ford was planning to cut Toronto city council almost in half and cancelling the upcoming regional chair elections in Peel, York, Niagara and Muskoka. Less than 24 hours later, Patrick Brown, the former Ontario PC leader who was in a good position to become Peel’s next regional chair, registered to run for mayor in Brampton.
As for the no longer available regional chair position, Brown registered to run for that on Tuesday, July 3. That was the beginning of a rather improbable political comeback following his dramatic ousting from the Ontario PC party due to controversial sexual misconduct allegations.
inBrampton.com recently sat down with Brown to talk about Doug Ford, his political comeback, his upcoming tell-all memoir and, oddly enough, whether or not he would ever run for mayor of Mississauga (looks like we had the wrong city in mind!).
Here’s what he had to say:
