WATCH: Computers in Ottawa searched in gas plant scandal

New information comes out in gas pant testimony

We're learning more about the investigation into the deleted gas plant emails and how far reaching the probe goes.

A government IT expert revealed computers in Ottawa may have had information wiped from them as well.

Shawn Truax testified at the committee looking into the gas plant cancellations that  they were seized last August, after there was a transition from one premier to another.

Truax says they were found in a satellite office Former premier Dalton McGuinty and ministers used in the nation's capitol and they were on a list of  52 government computers seized. Police say up to 24 hard drives may have had information deleted from them.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says she wants to let police do their work on this investigation.

Government House leader John Milloy doesn't get all the "drama," claiming these computers aren't being investigated by the OPP.

Tory energy critic Lisa MacLeod says the will be getting more information on these computers next week. She underline's the government committee looking into the gas plant scandal isn't only focused on the OPP investigation.

Last month, it was revealed police are focusing on former-McGuinty Chief of staff David Livingston, who is alleged to have hired another staff member's tech-savvy boyfriend to wipe information off of government computers. Livingston may face criminal charges.

    if someone takes your money and it's stealing, if you trust someone with it and they abuse it completely, it's simply a deletable mistake?
    Why are politicians so bullet proof???
    please find out if this indeed happened, and put anybody who destroyed evidence in jail along with them as you would a real thief

      @ad So what if they prove they stole, lied, cheated? The voters keeping the Liberals in power are mentally challenged morons and will keep voting Liberal no matter what proof there might be of stealing.

      These are the people that should be the butt of late night shows. They make Rob Ford look like a Mensa genius.

      They're the sort of idiots that would hire a known pedophile to run a daycare.

      @Frankie "These are the people that should be the butt of late night shows. They make Rob Ford look like a Mensa genius."

      Correct. It is these leftie voting idiots that keep us in the fast moving direction of the disappearing middle class.

      @Mark7 You are right. What's unfortunate is the middle class are the biggest losers with big and incompetent government. The rich don't care and the poor don't pay taxes so don't care.

      The middle class pay the lion's share for corrupt, incompetent government, as well as an inefficient public sector.

      Too bad they're not intelligent enough to understand that, otherwise we'd see smaller and competent governments elected.
