The Tories have officially responded to the premier $2 million lawsuit against them, after leader Tim Hudak and Energy Critic Lisa MacLeod made allegations last month that Premier Kathleen Wynne oversaw email deletion in the gas plant scandal.
The police investigation into the matter revolves around former Premier Dalton McGuinty's staff.
The lawyers letter underlines the Tories don't believe their statements constitute defamation.
MacLeod says they're not to blame in this entire situation, they're just trying to get the facts out there.
She says they're not backing down.
MacLeod claims the premier is making things worse for herself by continuously bringing up comments from last month.
These allegations haven't been proven in court.
