Premier Kathleen Wynne is suing Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak, MPP Lisa MacLeod and the PC Party of Ontario for $2 million for allegations about her role in the gas-plants scandal.

Wynne has repeatedly asked for a retraction of alleged defamation on the PC Party website linking her to the wiping of computers that the OPP claims occurred in the final days of former premier Dalton McGuinty’s administration.

“Why would I say sorry for doing my job,” MacLeod, the Tory MPP for Nepean-Carleton, told reporters Tuesday, adding she considered it a “frivolous lawsuit” that amounts to “libel chill.”

“We are going to get to the bottom of this $1.1-billion gas-plants scandal and the alleged coverup whether Kathleen Wynne and Dalton McGuinty like it or not,” she said.

Wynne’s statement of claim contends the defendants “have acted maliciously and caused damage to the plaintiff.”

The Liberals says any money Wynne receives as a result of the lawsuit will be donated to charity. She is seeking general damages in the amount of $1 million, $500,000 for aggravated damages and $500,000 for punitive damages.

The statement of claim in particular seized on a tweet from MacLeod in which she compared Wynne to the late disgraced U.S. president Richard Nixon.

Police are investigating former McGuinty’s chief of staff, David Livingston, for breach of trust in allegedly passing a special computer password to a non-government employee who wiped hard drives clean in the days before Wynne came to power. Tests are ongoing to see if hard drives were wiped after she took office.

Livingston has denied any wrongdoing and no one has been charged.

Among other things, Wynne is seeking damages in a libel action against Hudak for charging she “oversaw and possibly ordered the criminal destruction of documents to cover up the gas plants scandal.”


Premier Kathleen Wynne is a long time supporter of extreme feminism and the promotion of hatred towards men. She is also a long time supporter of the Children's Aid Society and refuses to listen to any complaint regarding criminal offenses by her feminist associates in Ontario's 54 branches of the Criminal Cartel, Liberal party entrenched over the decades.

Kathleen Wynne for example pays no attention to allegations of criminal offenses by Ottawa Children's Aid Society Lawyer, Marguerite Lewis.
