David Livingston, former premier Dalton McGuinty’s chief-of-staff between 2012 and 13, has been sentenced to four months in jail for his role in deleting government computers after the government cancelled gas plants in Mississauga and Oakville ahead of the 2011 election.
He also received 12 months probation and ordered to complete 100 hours of community service.
Outside court, his lawyer said his client would appeal both conviction and sentence.
Tory Leader Doug Ford says the scandal was evidence that the Liberals have ”no respect for the taxpayer dollar.”
NDP Leader Andrea Horwath told Zoomer Radio’s ”Fight Back” with Libby Znaimer, the sentence reminds voters how ”nasty” the scandal was, and that it was all about saving Liberal seats.
