In Shocking Testimony McGuinty Chief Of Staff Refuses To Blame Rob Ford Crack Video For Deletion Of Gas Plant Emails

A former top aide to ex-premier Dalton McGuinty fended off allegations today that senior Liberal staffers were directed to delete emails about two cancelled Toronto-area power plants as part of a cost coverup.

“There are 99 different reasons why staff are directed to delete documents,” McGuinty’s former chief of staff, Chris Morley, told a justice committee hearing this morning. “This — the debate that’s emerged in Ontario that suggests that no document can ever be deleted — is simply false, it needs to be confronted.”
