Update: Police allege breach of trust by former Dalton McGuinty staffer over computer access
Dalton McGuinty’s last chief of staff got a deputy’s IT-savvy boyfriend “unrestricted” access to 24 employees’ computers in the premier’s office before and after Kathleen Wynne took power, alleges a search warrant request from an OPP officer probing deleted emails in the $1.1 billion scandal over cancelled power plants.
Before obtaining the access, chief of staff David Livingston told the executive assistant to Cabinet Secretary Peter Wallace of his intent to use a person from outside the Ontario Public Service to wipe out hard drives in the offices of the premier during the transition to Wynne’s government, the document alleges.
Information in the warrant application has not been tested in court.
New gas plant allegations involve Dalton McGuinty aide
Former Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty’s ex chief of staff is accused of giving a third party access to computers in the premier’s office, which resulted in sensitive information about the cancellation of gas plants being removed from hard drives.
The allegations are contained in an information to obtain (ITO) document the Ontario Provincial Police filed in court to request a search warrant for a storage facility in Mississauga, where the Ontario government hard drives were being stored.
