TORONTO — Roger Stone, a former adviser to former U.S. President Donald Trump, has been named senior strategic adviser to help the Ontario Party in Canada’s June provincial election.

In making the announcement, Ontario Party Leader Derek Sloan called Stone a friend and accomplished American Conservative political strategist.

“Roger’s insights into campaign strategies designed to take Ontario back will be invaluable to our grassroots campaign moving forward,” Sloan said in a press release.

Stone, a longtime Trump confidant, was found guilty in 2019 of lying to the US Congress. He was later pardoned by Trump.

Founded in 2018, the Ontario Party is a conservative alternative to Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservatives.

Sloan, a former Conservative MP, ran for party leadership in 2020 but lost. He was subsequently removed from the Conservative Party caucus.

He became leader of the Ontario Party in December 2021.
