Ex-McGuinty aides plead not guilty in deleted gas plants emails case

TORONTO – Two top political aides to former Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty pleaded not guilty Monday to charges over the destruction of internal emails about the Liberal government’s costly cancellation of two gas plants.

Foreshadowing what is expected to be a bitterly fought case, the long-awaited trial of David Livingston and his deputy Laura Miller finally began with an attack on the prosecution over the information it had provided the defence.

    I assume there is still a penalty for perjury.

        Guilty as charged.

      • Clausewitz

        No one with an (L) after their name ever gets punished.

  • I honestly don’t know why they don’t roll on their former employers.

    • Alain

      If they thought they would actually be facing serious consequences (yes, that is a wild stretch), I am sure they would. That however does not happen in Canada.

      • Why would any jail time be worth covering for those mucks?

        • Alain

          I meant that they are certain they will never see any jail time, because that has been the pattern in Canada for some time already.

    • They dindunuffin!

        She looks fuckable though.

          But remember, she’s a Liberal, G-d only knows where she’s been.

      • I think that’s the more urban excuse.

    It would be nice to see long sentences dealt out in the absence of a “full cooperation plea bargain”. Then the (I wish) trials for the two reckless and irresponsible opposition vote whores who created this “appealing to rent seekers for their votes mess” in the first place can be quickly dealt with. 20 years each would send the correct message.

    If there truly was truth in advertising in Canada the Liberal Party would have to call themselves The Crooked Party.

  • Liberal Progressive

    As we say in our party, “the only illegal is getting caught!”

      And, anyway, they were only following orders.
