Brown’s national campaign co-chair John Reynolds sent a letter today to the Conservative Party of Canada’s leadership election organizing committee asking it to investigate emails sent by Pierre Poilievre’s campaign before last month’s deadline to sell $15 memberships to supporters.

To vote for the next leader of the Conservative Party, the party had said supporters had to be registered as members by June 3.

Poilievre’s campaign said it alone sold nearly 312,000 memberships, including some 119,000 in Ontario.

But Reynolds’ letter alleges Brown’s campaign received a ‘number of complaints’ from members who said they bought new memberships after receiving what appeared to be an ‘official-looking warning’ from Poilievre’s team. that their membership status was incomplete.

The email says it’s from Poilievre’s campaign.
