TORONTO, /CNW/ -March 13, 2020 /CNW/ - In my book Takedown, and thereafter, I made statements about a complaint of inappropriate conduct made against Vic Fedeli by a former member of my staff when I was leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party.
As I noted in Takedown, I did not believe that allegation to be in keeping with Vic Fedeli's character. In publishing Takedown and in statements I made thereafter about this allegation, I did not, and did not intend to suggest or imply that Vic Fedeli had in fact engaged in any such conduct or that he had in fact acted in any way inappropriately.
To Vic Fedeli and his family: I regret if anyone understood me to be saying the opposite and I apologize for any misunderstanding.
I consider this an end to the matter and will not be making any further statements or comment about it.
