Gretzky is endorsing Brown as the best person to become the leader of Ontario's official opposition.
The hockey legend says he's known Brown for a number of years and says he's hardworking, dedicated and "a strong Conservative."
He says Brown has "the passion and vision to lead Ontario."
Brown, the only leadership hopeful without a seat in the Ontario legislature, says he is honoured to receive Gretzky's support.
