Two aides to former premier Dalton McGuinty face charges in connection with the gas plants scandal that cast a cloud over his final days in office.
The charges follow an OPP investigation into the destruction of thousands of e-mails related to Liberals’ decision to pull the plug on the Oakville and Mississauga gas plants prior to the 2011 election, which the auditor general found will cost taxpayers up to over $1-billion.
In her statement, Kathleen Wynne says, ”I am not going to comment on these issues out of respect for the integrity of the ongoing legal proceedings. As I have stated before the government cooperated fully with this investigation and will continue to do so.”
63-year-old David Livingston, McGuinty’s former chief of staff and 36-year-old Laura Miller, the deputy chief, are to appear at Toronto’s Old City Hall court January 27, 2016.
