Ontario opposition parties want gas plant committee recalled

TORONTO ─ Ontario opposition parties have asked Premier Kathleen Wynne to recharge the government committee investigating the $1.1-billion cancellation of two gas plants following allegations that senior staff were coached on how to delete potentially explosive e-mails.

PC MPP Michael Harris said the Liberal Party should also refund to taxpayers the $10,000 paid to the spouse of a senior political staffer to wipe government computer hard drives.

“When they’re at it, they should add $1.1 billion to it,” Harris said
