The Premier has flexed her legal muscles in Tim Hudak's direction, getting her lawyer to send a cease-and-desist letter to him after he continued to point fingers in the gas plant email deletion scandal.
The PC leader alleges she oversaw everything. These allegations have not been proven in court.
Kathleen Wynne was in Sault-Ste-Marie this afternoon and was pressed on all-things-gas plant.
Wynne also ran through the timeline of how long Peter Faist worked for the Liberals and the government.
She underlined he has not been paid taxpayer money while she has been premier. She says the party fired him when his name popped up in relation to the gas plant cancellation email deletion allegations.
Last week, police documents revealed Dalton McGuinty's former chief of staff may face criminal charges after he allegedly brought on Faist, another staffer's boyfriend, to wipe government computers.
Text from the lawyer's letter:
"All of these statements are untrue and neither Mr. Hudak nor Ms. MacLeod has any evidence to support them. All of these statements could be the subject of a defamation action.
The PC Party repeated some of these false allegations on its website, which is owned and operated by the PC Ontario Fund, and in a public email.
We require that Mr. Hudak, Ms. MacLeod the PC Party and the PC Ontario Fund immediately cease and desist any publication or repetition of these false allegations. Any such statements or similar statements must be immediately removed from the PC Ontario website and any other websites owned or controlled by the PC Party.
We also require Mr. Hudak and the PC Party to immediately issue a full and unqualified public retraction of these allegations as well as a public apology to the Premier.
If these steps are not taken immediately, the Premier will take all necessary and appropriate steps to vindicate her reputation, without further notice."
