Huron-Bruce | by Fadi Didi  

Thompson says party agrees Brown cannot lead province's Progressive Conservatives.

The Progressive Conservative MPP for Huron-Bruce has issued a statement, following the resignation of party leader Patrick Brown.

A CTV News report details graphic sexual misconduct allegedly involving Brown and two women, dating back to when Brown was a federal MP.

One of the women claims she was in high school when the allegation took place.

Huron-Bruce Tory MPP Lisa Thompson says she and the PC caucus, "firmly believe in the principles of a safe and respectful society for all."

Thompson states she and her party, "agreed that he [Brown] cannot lead us into the upcoming election."

She goes on to say the Progressive Conservatives remain committed to defeating the Liberals in the scheduled June 7th provincial election.

In a press conference Thursday night, Brown told reporters the allegations were false, and he would fight them in court.
