Ontario’s New Democratic Party is demanding that the minority Wynne Liberal government call a public inquiry into the $1.1-billion dollar gas plant scandal.

The N.D.P. has kept the Liberals in power for the past two years.

In a letter sent to Premier Kathleen Wynne today N.D.P. leader Andrea Horwath says an inquiry must be called immediately.

Horwath wants a special independent prosecutor from outside the province to be appointed – who would work with the Ontario Provincial Police anti-rackets squad.

The letter comes amid allegations that former Premier Dalton McGuinty’s previous chief of staff – David Livingston – gave an outside tech-expert access to government computers which may have contained information about the cancellation of two gas-fired power plants.

Both Dalton McGuinty and Premier Wynne have denied any involvement with Livingston or anyone else – in connection with deleted emails concerning the gas plants.

The allegations against Livingston have not been tested in court.
