The phone call that ended Patrick Brown’s leadership

“The recording chirps with beeps and rings as more caucus members enter the call. One agrees. Another says a roll call must be held. Caucus members are still dialling in. Some are careful to avoid assuming the allegations made against Brown are true. ‘It’s Gila here,’ says MPP Gila Martow. ‘I think we have to be very careful that we’re not saying we believe one side or the other side. We don’t know the facts. But just that we have to ask that he step aside because this matter has to be settled while he is not the leader and then if it gets settled to everybody’s satisfaction, we would welcome him back to the team in some capacity. Whatever was available. But I think that we have to be careful with the language that we’re not accusing anybody.’”
