Interim leader Vic Fedeli kicked Patrick Brown from the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party caucus last week, but claimed neutrality on Tuesday over Brown’s contentious move to join the leadership race over the weekend.

“It’s unfair to talk about Mr. Brown and those decisions. It happened before he entered the leadership race,” Mr. Fedeli said according to the CBC, speaking on how he removed the former leader from the party.

“I am not going to offer comment about a candidate or any of the history.”

Fedeli said that he wrote to the party chief before Brown joined the leadership race, raising concerns about his suitability as a PC candidate.

“I wrote to the party president and indicated that Mr. Brown did not have my confidence to be party candidate in Barrie.”

Brown joined the race on Friday after meeting with officials at the party headquarters for about two hours.

He held a rally on Sunday that kick-started his campaign.
