Recent revelations have confirmed that the primarily suspected computer specialist being probed in an ongoing OPP investigation into breach of trust in the premier’s office had a contract with the Ontario Liberal Party that was only cancelled last weekend, i.e. two days after revelations of a criminal probe in the gas plant scandal rocked Queen’s Park.
Addressing the issue, Government House Leader, John Milloy, revealed that Peter Faist’s invoices have been handed over to Ontario Provincial Police as they continue to assist the investigation into deleted emails in the $1.1 billion cancellation and relocations of two gas plants. He stated that “we made it clear that his services were no longer needed,” while referring Faist, who is the boyfriend of ex-premier Dalton McGuinty’s former deputy chief of staff, Laura Miller. Furthermore, Milloy added “that information has been turned over to the authorities” and “we’ll let them decide if it’s relevant.”
