TORONTO -- Shut up.

That's what Premier Kathleen Wynne is saying in her letter to PC Leader Tim Hudak.

Well, hint to her:

If you're going to make public a letter accusing Hudak of making "false, misleading and defamatory allegations about me," it's a good idea not to repeat the alleged defamatory comments in that letter.

Why?

Because it adds fuel to the fire. How can journalists reliably report on the matter without divulging the contents of her letter?

Wynne released the letter Sunday calling on Hudak to "stop making false and defamatory accusations regarding allegations that an individual came into the former Premier's office to delete records.
