Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne says a date has been set for her to meet with police investigating allegations two Liberals broke the law in the lead-up to Sudbury’s recent by-election.

The Ontario Provincial Police are probing allegations the Liberals offered would-be candidate Andrew Olivier a job or appointment to step aside for their preferred candidate.

Wynne won’t reveal the exact date and time of her interview, but she says it will take place before the end of April.

Recorded conversations with Wynne’s deputy chief of staff, Pat Sorbara, and local Liberal organizer Gerry Lougheed, who is also chair of Sudbury’s police services board, are at the centre of the allegations.
