Brad Blair believes his firing as deputy commissioner of the OPP was reprisal for his legal battle over the appointment of Premier Doug Ford’s long-time friend, Ron Taverner, as commissioner.

Blair wants the courts to force Ontario’s ombudsman to investigate the hiring of the Toronto police superintendent.
The government’s denied any political interference in Blair’s firing and says he released confidential OPP information.
However, Blair contends the attorney general could have asked the court to seal those documents if there were concern about them being made public.
In documents filed today he argues his firing is an attempt to ”muzzle” him.
The NDP is calling for a public inquiry.
Taverner’s appointment has been delayed until the integrity commissioner completes an investigation into his hiring.
