REPORT: Patrick Brown Says “I Am Suing CTV”


CTV News is facing intense criticism after key details in their original story on accusations against Brown were revealed to be false.

Former Ontario PC Party Leader Patrick Brown is suing CTV, after they made a massive mistake (what many are now calling “fake news”) in the report that caused him to lose his job.

Brown made the announcement in a Facebook post.

Here’s part of what Brown said:

“CTV News keeps saying I’m refusing to answer the question of whether my accusers are lying. Hear me loud and clear CTV – the answer is yes!

In the court of public opinion and among the many journalists I’ve spoken to, these allegations are now seen for what they are – fictitious and malicious.

Right now, everyone is asking me two questions: 1) Am I suing CTV? And 2) What are my future plans.

To the first question, the answer is a resounding yes – I am suing CTV.

My lawyers are talking to CTV. Early this week, CTV lawyers agreed to ensure that all emails, texts and other correspondence related to this travesty are held independently for safe keeping.

As for my immediate future, I’m spending lots of time on the phone listening to my colleagues.”

The full post can be seen below:

CTV News had first reported that one of Brown’s accusers was in high school and was under the drinking age. Both details turned out to be false, and now the entire story is being questioned.

In an interesting irony, CTV News is now facing massive backlash on social media – reminiscent of the backlash their story caused Brown to face.

As I wrote earlier, CTV News is now facing a huge credibility crisis, and their reputation lies in tatters among many Canadians.

  1. You are a fighter Mr. Brown, sad that our news is so false, maybe if enough people went after these news outlets or simply quit using them, but where do you get any true news with a socialist government. Absolute power corrupts absolutely like our socialist government. If we do not get honest people for the whole country we will be in the same shape as Venezuela,

    1. I agree 100%. The corrupt Liberal’s, lead by Traitor Trudeau. The elites and Soros are behind all this corruption. I would love to see these journalists pay heavily for destroying innocent people’s lives. The news and Trudeau are likely behind this. CTV needs to pay and Trudeau needs to be taken out of his position as he the most despicable piece of crap to ever lead Canada.

  2. I stand firmly behind Patrick Brown and believe that there must be accountability for false reporting, especially when it destroys someone’s life! The accusers should also be charged for malicious slander and chatacter assassination! Furthermore, since when is it a crime to talk to someone, if nothing untoward happens?? Social media has created the new “Age of McCarthyism”, or the “Salem Witch Hunts”, or maybe even the “Spanish Inquisition”!

  3. What we don’t want but have here in Canada is an Canadian version of the MSM. But it seems as if CTV is a part of our MSN. Too bad.
    However, I’m happy that even as a BC resident, this happened. The last thing Canada needs, at this point, is another liberal passing himself as a Conservative. Now Ontario, get Doug Ford elected as the Conservative leader ASAP and elected as Premier of Ontario.

  4. I still maintain that “the MSM is the biggest curse this country has” … and that applies to the USA also … and likely other countries with “liberal” media.

  5. I agree 100%. The corrupt Liberal’s, lead by Traitor Trudeau. The elites and Soros are behind all this corruption.

    Yes so true
    The power of the press is now biting back……….how does it feel CTV.

    Kudos to Patrick Brown for holding to his truth, knowing the cost
    of this journey he has chosen to embark on.
    Canadians, even those called Nazis by G. Butts, can no longer support FAKE NEWS.

  7. I agree 100 percent with Mr Brown that these ladies go to the Barrie Police but to-night there lawyer says no.Another person said they do not have to go.Everyone in this country must have there day in court.I am with you
