Deleted-Document Scandal Delves DeeperApril 30, 2018
QUEEN’S PARK – Yet another day, and yet another explosive revelation in the deleted document scandal. Evidence released by Trillium Power related to their $500 million lawsuit against the Government alleges that senior operatives wiped government computers to bury evidence.
Trillium Power also alleges those operatives played favourites in support of another offshore wind company.
“Today’s story proves the political corruption of this government knows no bounds. They wiped government computers to hide documents in the Gas Plant scandal and now we know they deleted documents to hide their shady dealings with this latest energy scandal,” said Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli.
A Freedom of Information request from Trillium Power shows that only one record showed up responsive to their request. Details around the alleged deletion of e-mails relating to Trillium Power are the subject of the fifth OPP investigation into this government.
David Livingston was recently sentenced to four months in prison for deleting e-mails as a part of the gas plants scandal.
“They can’t be trusted. They deleted gas plant documents. They deleted documents in the Trillium Power lawsuit. They wiped computers. This is political corruption plain and simple,” concluded Fedeli.
