QUEENS PARK – Politics – “The Information and Privacy Commissioner called me this afternoon to say she had uncovered more gas plant documents,” said Fedeli. “These documents were previously hidden from us as part of a batch the Liberals had said were ‘unrecoverable’.”
“Less than two hours ago, I got a call from the privacy commissioner, who was very upset,” said Fedeli. “The documents were previously called unrecoverable”.
Secret Liberal Emails Uncovered – Fedeli
Fedeli congratulated the Privacy Commissioner for her hard work. “The people of Ontario have been mislead,” stated the MPP. Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner has uncovered more secret documents related to the $600-million gas plant cancellations at Oakville and Mississauga, PC MPP Vic Fedeli said this afternoon.
“The people of Ontario have been misled yet again by the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals, as they continue to hide just how much taxpayer money was spent on winning seats in Mississauga and Oakville”.
“Kathleen Wynne talks about being a different kind of leader, but this is straight from the McGuinty playbook,” continued Fedeli. “The Liberals are determined to hide the true cost of this scandal from Ontarians, and the NDP will continue to prop them up. It’s time to change the team that leads this province.”
Asked how many emails Fedeli stated, “I don’t know what are in the emails, we received a letter today at the Justice Committee after the deadline had passed. I am not prepared to
“A lot of records have been found, these are the former chief of staff to the Energy Minister, a significant number are responsive to the gas plants”
“There are definitely emails that she had been told had been deleted,” stated Fedeli.
In terms of content, the privacy commissioner has said the emails are significant but neither Fedeli or the Privacy Commissioner have not seen the content of the emails. “They have gone to a great deal of effort and length to hide these emails”, commented Fedeli.
Who recovered the emails? It appears it was a very complicated explanation of ‘computer 101’ at the Chief Information Officer‘s staff to recover the emails”. The missing emails were in the RAID System and depending on how they are deleted, they go into an ‘Enterprise Vault‘.
I believe it is the threat of jail doors slamming that caused these emails to be discovered”, commented an angry Fedeli.
It is likely to be fall before the committee will meet. The documents will be in the hands of Fedeli and the Justice Committee in a few days.
