The gas-plant scandal is proving to be hard for Kathleen Wynne to outrun.
The broad strokes of the Thursday revelations that provincial police are investigating possible breach of trust charges against a senior aide to former premier Dalton McGuinty should not be that surprising to anyone who has paid attention to the file over the past year.
Testimony before ongoing justice committee hearings, and a report from the information and privacy commissioner, have made it clear that some of Mr. McGuinty’s closest advisors, including former chief of staff David Livingston, went to considerable effort to ensure that there was no digital record of their communications, the better to frustrate efforts by opposition MPPs to find out which Liberals knew what — and when — about cancellation costs that were five times higher than they had first stated publicly.
