We can't help you. That was the Ontario government's response to citizens who followed up on Premier Doug Ford's promise that they could get legal aid by contacting his office.

Ford's office forwarded requests for legal aid to former attorney general Caroline Mulroney, newly released emails show.

"Thank you very much for your email about legal aid," Ford wrote to constituents who contacted his office. "As the issue you raised falls in the area of responsibility of the Honourable Caroline Mulroney, Attorney General, I've forwarded your email to her."

In some cases, the Ministry of the Attorney General wrote back to say there was nothing it could do.
