Paul Rhodes is a Canadian political strategist. He was communications director for the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party during the 1995, 1999 and 2003 elections, and communications director for Ontario premier Mike Harris from 1995 to 1997.
Rhodes was paid more than $1,000,000 by the Government of Ontario after he left the premier's office, including $250,000 for communications consulting on the Walkerton disaster, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in untendered contracts by government corporations such as Hydro One and Ontario Power Generation. Rhodes' work was disclosed under Freedom of Information laws, and despite the hefty pay-out, very little real work was performed; much of it was little more than short e-mails.
