The provincial Tories are coming under fire for criticizing the union representing OPP officers the day after a deadly police shooting in Moncton.
They say the OPPA met with the Liberals before running attack ads against the the Progressive Conservatives.
But after calling what happened in New Brunswick a tragedy, Tory leader Tim Hudak says the situation with the OPP concerns him. He says he wants to know what the Liberals promised them, alleging the meeting led to the attack ads.
However, Premier Kathleen Wynne says she has no influence over who the OPPA or any other organization chooses to endorse.
Wynne says it's common for all parties to meet with special interest groups to hear concerns from different members of the community.
She also called what happened in Moncton, a tragedy.
The ads show police in uniform, warning that Hudak will rip up union contracts, causing labour unrest.
