Ontario PC candidate resigns after private 407 freeway confirms ‘internal theft’ of data on 60,000 customers

TORONTO — An employee of Ontario’s 407 private freeway quit suddenly Wednesday as a Progressive Conservative candidate in next month’s election, barely an hour after the highway confirmed that information on 60,000 customers had been leaked through an “internal theft.”

Simmer Sandhu, the candidate for Brampton East, said in an online statement that he had recently been made aware of anonymous allegations against him “pertaining to both my work life and my nomination campaign.”

These are the wages of identity politics.
