Newstalk1010 has learned the province has pushed David Nicholl out of his deputy minister role sooner than expected.

He's the bureaucrat who allegedly played a role in deleting emails from computers in the former premier's office.

Nicholl was expected to leave as interim deputy minister of government services on April 22 but that was moved up.  He will move back to his role Ontario's corporate chief information officer.

Greg Orencsak of the Treasury Board replaced him.

This come as the Tories demanded Nicholl step down.

It's alleged that Nicholl gave the green light to Dalton McGuinty's chief of staff David Livingston in wiping the computers.
 
Tory energy critic Lisa MacLeod says Nicholl opened the door to "hacker" Peter Faist, the boyfriend of a McGuinty staff member alleged to have deleted the documents.

MacLeod speculates how much further this stretches, noting document deletion could have played a role in other scandals.

Premier Kathleen Wynne was questioned on the matter during Question Period, but she repeated that opposition should let the OPP investigation into the matter unfold.

Meantime, NDP leader Andrea Horwath says they are reviewing a list of people to testify again at gas plants committee, including Wynne.
