    (arm in the air) OH, Oh, oh, pick me for the jury, pick me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      That’s homophobic!

  • Ron MacDonald

    Why wan’t McGuinty charged?

    • ontario john

      It will be a whitewash, or coverup of the roles that Wynne and McGuinty played as the godfathers of this organized crime organization that runs Ontario.

      • Our predatory Public Service Unions control Wynne’s political destiny.

        As long as the Liberals allow them to steal us blind they will remain in power.

      • David Murrell

        The OPP only charge the fall guys.

        • Physics grad

          The crooked OPP got their quid pro quo…

      • Surele Surele

        you wanna bet that David Livingston and Laura Miller were promised a gold mine if (when) they agreed to be sacrificed.

    • Tom Forsythe

      Charge the underlings first, then try to flip them.

      • That would happen in a normal jurisdiction. Ontario is a 3rd world style kleptocracy.

        The aides will get a slap on the wrist at worst and McGuinty and Wynne will skate. The payoff for the OPP will come at the next round of contract negotiations.

          I suspect that Justin has been helping, getting his family friend Fidel Castro to provide advice to Kathleen on how to handle the situation.

      can’t go there,,nooo, not with BigDyke signing the cheques

    • Alain

      Since those aids would have been following orders and not on their own, the person ordering the deletion must be charged. Otherwise it is replacing the rule of law with banana republic style “justice”.

  • BradThomas

    Wow – thank goodness. These people don’t care about right and wrong, obviously, but they do care about consequences. Even the possibility of being charged might (emphasis on “might”) make at least some of them, reconsider their unethical – and illegal – actions. Well, one can hope….

    • Surele Surele

      media party will bury this under Mike Duffy coverage.

      • David Murrell

        The CBC News web site had the story on their front page, but by this evening buried way down the “national news” page.

  • robins111

    A fish rots from the head first.. notice the refer to them as Daltoids staffers… must got laid off when Lickity Split got the job..

  • mauser 98

    trial to begin in 3 years

    • Surele Surele

      and nothing will happen.

  • Jaedo Drax

    why no conspiracy charge?

    • The real conspiracy has yet to happen, everyone will walk in the end.

  • Exile1981
    • Thanks.

      • Exile1981

        No problem, they have been covering the ongoing story pretty closely for a trade magazine.

    • mauser 98

      wow…forwarded

    • Gary

      There’s one big question.
      How did the drives get wiped clean when the Techy had to get past the OOP guard placed outside the Office entrance as we see in the News clips when the Premier exits the Office.
      Was Sgt Schultz on Guard and LeBeau was down the hall with fresh Strudel and Chocolate Bars with raisins to lure him away????

      Dalton McGuilty fled to Boston with a bogus story of a Job as to leave the Lesbian behind to play dumb and tell the meaid that she’s too stupid to be expected to know what went on around her under McLiars reign.

      Look as well the Stupidity angle work for Chretien and Martin at the AdScam inquiry , Martin boasted about his stupidity that he didn’t see skid loads of $50 million at a time being wheeled out the back door top the loading dock.
      Basically…… they were forced to admit that a Liberal can’t be trusted with large sums of Taxpayers money as sociopathic liar with a Mental Disorder from birth.

      Look at Wynne, she lied to her husband and children to F up their lives by turning gay as did Svend Robinson and Libby Davies which was for Political gains and a Shield to cry Homophobia when they get caught stealing tax dollars of Supporting a terrorist groups like Hamas which Svend and Libby do on top of their LIES.

      • Exile1981

        Since the people that deleted the emails all had access to the office I would suspect that the guard let them in. Unless he was ordered to block them specifically or everyone generally then he would have had no reason not to allow them in.

  • Fredrick. Allen.Ginsberg

    Hmm, OPP waits until Ontario Legislature is on Christmas break. Sure it is just a coincidence.

    • Fredrick. Allen.Ginsberg

      Sorry for my microagression (Christmas), I meant break that happens to (unfortunately) coincide with a certain holiday.

      • Clink9

        Please report to the nearest Government Depot.

        • David Murrell

          Premier Wynne?

  • mobuyus

    Is there an APB out on mcguinty?

  • David Murrell

    Meanwhile, the Globe and Mail closed the comments at the bottom of their article covering this story.

  • Fredrick. Allen.Ginsberg

    The sad thing is the majority of people in Ontario could care less. My neighbour is more concerned about the effects of global warming because it was mild today in the GTA. Apparently the Scarborough glaciers are melting……..

    • Clink9

      I have a photo of my looney neighbor ( with my new wiz bang camera ) in Scarborough taken on Christmas day 35 years ago of him cutting the lawn.

      We had some pretty mild winters back then but nobody figured out how to pillage the taxpayers with phony fears about it.

      • Fredrick. Allen.Ginsberg

        We used to enjoy those days, now kids are taught to fear and loathe them.

    • Physics grad

      Your neighbor is an ignorant idiot – this is all due to the El Nino, it is not climate change, it is a normal weather pattern.

      • Fredrick. Allen.Ginsberg

        Trust me, we all know she is an idiot. You should hear her views on fertilizer.

  • Surele Surele

    And the buck stops where?

  • Ron MacDonald

    On the bright side this will probably cost each of these individuals up to 500 hundred thousand dollars to defend themselves.

    • My bet is the Tax Payers will be stuck with the tab but Wynne will claim the money came from donations to party coffers.
