In light of recent confusion, we thought it might be beneficial to address some of the myths that Patrick Brown and his fellow Conservatives have been propagating because Facts Still Matter in Ontario.
This website is maintained by the Liberal Caucus Service Bureau. The staff in our research department welcome any inquiries or tips you may have.
We're happy to provide the public service of addressing and correcting false claims, exaggerations, and deceptions made by the Opposition in one clearing house. Where applicable, we'll also provide additional third party factual information.
If you encounter misinformation on social media, in a speech, or in an interview, or simply wish to get the facts on something you've heard from the Opposition, please feel free to ask us for clarification. When possible, a link to the source material would be helpful.
