It says "Notice of Libel" in big bold letters, addressed to Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak, PC Energy Critic Lisa MacLeod and their party.

The premier's office has released the legal document sent out on Friday, outlining what is being referred to as "false and defamatory" statements made both in a news conference on March 27th by Hudak and MacLeod, and on Twitter.

The allegations include Hudak's claims the premier had a role in "the criminal destruction of emails and documents related to the gas plant scandal" and that the deletion took place under her watch.

This notice also points to MacLeod stating in that same press conference that the Premier had her "hard drives wiped" and that she "has no moral authority to govern this province any longer"

Many of these statements, according to the notice, are also posted on the PC party website.

The Premier's lawyer also outlines statements made by MacLeod on Twitter, in particular tweets by MacLeod claiming the premier is crook and implying she deserves the same contempt as former US president Richard Nixon.

The notice of libel includes four pages of allegations made by the Tories, underlining "they constitute a libel against the Premier."

None of these allegations have been proven in court.
