The news comes after the Conservative Party of Canada disqualified him as a candidate for its leadership earlier this month.

In a previous statement, Ian Brodie, chair of the Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC), said Brown was disqualified after the chief returning officer investigated allegations against the Brown campaign of violating the financial provisions of the Canada Elections Act.

Brown has denied the allegations and is appealing the party’s decision.

He has also served the city of Brampton’s mayor since 2018.

Brown had previously said he would consider running for mayor of Brampton again in this October’s municipal elections if it seemed like he couldn’t win the federal Conservative leadership.

The deadline for registering as a candidate is Aug. 19.
