Former Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown Writing A Book About His 'Political Assassination.'

Toronto | by Ian MacLennan  
Publisher says some of the biggest names in federal/provincial politics were caught up in Brown's success and/or demise.

Patrick Brown is telling his story in his words about what he calls his 'political assassination.'

The former Ontario PC leader is writing a book that is to be released November 1.

It's called--Take Down: The Political Assassination of Patrick Brown.

The book is being released by Optimum Publishing International.

President Dean Baxendale says the book is going to be hard hitting because there is a lot more than  meets the eye with respect to Brown's downfall.

Brown resigned as leader of the PC's in January after CTV News broadcast a story about alleged sexual misconduct involving two women.

Brown is suing CTV News for $8 million.

The network stands by its story.

Brown was also removed from the Tory caucus and up until the election campaign sat as an Indpendent MPP for Simcoe North.

Baxendale says it will become very clear that some of the biggest names in politics, both federal and provincially, all played some role in Patrick's success and/or demise, as the case might be.

The book, according to Baxendale,  will take people through Brown's early life in politics,  his rise to Conservative MP,  his decision to take on the leadership for the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party,  and he says it will talk about trading alliances that are required to build a party and the opportunities that presented.

In a statement from the publisher,  Brown said "Yes, it appeared I would be premier of Canada's largest province by age 40.  Instead, on January 24th, 2017, I was all but assassinated in public.   Who did it, how and why?  This is a story of betrayal, blackmail, and backroom politicking involving some of Canada's biggest political names.  This was my dream,  this was my nightmare.  I'm Patrick Brown, and this is my story."

Baxendale say the book has even caught the attention of Hollywood.

He says a number of production people are interested in taking the book to film, adding his contacts have approached him and there has been approaches directly to Brown.
