Christie Blatchford: IT chief sought access to all computers in McGuinty’s office, gas plants trial told

TORONTO — Ontario’s senior IT bureaucrat asked his tech people for sweeping “administrative rights” that allowed a user access and the ability to delete or manipulate data on 90 computers in former premier Dalton McGuinty’s office.

The bombshell came Wednesday in testimony at the criminal trial of former McGuinty chief of staff David Livingston and former deputy chief of staff Laura Miller.
