"Contrary to your statement, Premier Wynne is not standing trial".

On trial for bribery - for allegedly offering inducements to Olivier to bow out of the 2015 byelection race in favour of Premier Kathleen Wynne's preferred candidate, and eventual victor, Glenn Thibeault - are prominent local Liberal Gerry Lougheed Jr. and the former CEO of the Ontario Liberal Party, Patricia Sorbara. "Your statement is false and misleading and appears to have been made with the intention to harm the reputation of Ms. Wynne", a letter delivered to Brown on Wednesday from Jack Siegel of Blaney McMurtry reads.

"The statements could be the subject of a defamation action", Siegel warns in the letter.

Pat Sorbara, Wynne's former deputy chief of staff and Liberal campaign director, and Gerry Lougheed, a local Liberal organizer, are charged under the Election Act.
