Ont. gov’t resignations follow separate inappropriate conduct allegations

Two separate allegations of inappropriate conduct have triggered a pair of high-profile resignations in the Ontario PC government.

On Monday, Premier Doug Ford’s office announced a cabinet shuffle to replace former economic development, job creation and trade minister Jim Wilson who, according to a statement from the premier’s office, stepped down last week to “seek treatment for addiction issues.”

…The male complainant alleged an intoxicated Wilson made inappropriate comments and sexual passes towards him.
