The day after OPP officers searched a data storage facility in Mississauga as a part of its investigation into deleted gas plant emails, opposition is pressing the premier on the matter.

The NDP wants Kathleen Wynne to appoint a special prosecutor in this case if charges are laid, but the premier says she won't make statements based on hypothetical situations.

Wynne underlined she will not comment on ongoing police investigations.

The Premier continues to stand by her statement that the government has been transparent about the gas plant cancellations, pointing to helping with the OPP investigation and releasing hundreds of thousand of documents to a legislative committee.

The Progressive Conservatives demand the premier to call a confidence motion they have on the table to a vote, in hopes of a possibility the government will fall. That would force an election.

The search and seizure at the facility is part of a criminal investigation into emails discussing the Mississauga and Oakville gas plant cancellations said to have been wiped from computers at Queen's Park.

A few months ago, officers searched the premier's office.

Opposition parties allege staff in the former premier's and energy minister's offices were part of a cover-up regarding the gas plant cancellations.
