Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown on Wednesday evening held an emergency press conference at Queen’s Park in Toronto in an attempt to address a story of sexual harassment allegations before it was aired. 

Two women have come forward with graphic sexual misconduct allegations against Mr. Brown, according to an exclusive by CTV News that was not yet aired before Brown’s presser .

The allegations, which Brown denies, date back to when he was a federal MP, according to CTV.

In the brief presser that started shortly before 9:50 p.m., Brown made it clear the allegations were false, saying he plans to “defend myself as hard as I can, with all the means at my disposal.”

“I can’t speculate on the motive of my accusers, I can only they what they are saying is categorically untrue.”
