CFN – Tim Hudak is the focus of a letter released by Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.
The Preme is upset at statements made by the PC Leader who has otherwise been keeping a pretty low profile.
Quiet so far on this battle as the drums of a Spring election beat louder is NDP leader Andrea Horwath who must be smiling as she reads media reports of the battle across Ontario.
Ms Wynne seems read to bring in the legal guns. Wonder if she’ll hire a super Lawyer Will McDowell? I also wonder if this is a legal bill the Province will get stuck with?
Dear Mr. Hudak
During your press conference on March 27th you made several false, misleading and defamatory allegations about me. You alleged that I personally “oversaw and possibly ordered the criminal destruction of documents” and that criminal conduct took place in my office. The Ontario Progressive Conservative Party repeated these false allegations on its website and in a public mailing.
These allegations and accusations are false and utterly unsupported, and you ought to know it.
As political leaders it is our role and public duty to engage in spirited political debate on issues. The decision to relocate the gas plants and the facts related to the ongoing police investigation are legitimate subjects for this political debate. False, misleading and defamatory statements are not, and they represent the worst kind of politics. That is why I am writing this open letter to you.
There should be no tolerance for false and defamatory accusations as a means to gain political power.
I am asking you and your caucus to immediately stop repeating these untrue statements and to immediately remove them from the PC Party website and all other communications.
I have sought and obtained legal advice regarding your comments, and if steps are not taken immediately, I will have no choice but to take all necessary and appropriate steps to ensure your false statements are corrected.
Premier of Ontario
