Gas Busters Part 73: Original Request to OPP from MPPs Fedeli and Leone

Attached is the original letter MPPs Victor Fedeli and Rob Leone sent to OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis on June 6, 2013. The letter closes with the two MPPs asking the OPP to “investigate this latest cover-up to ensure the laws of the Province of Ontario are upheld and to deter similar behaviour from ever happening again.”

Letter to OPP from Vic Fedeli and Rob Leone

The Fedeli/Leone letter references the report of the Information and Privacy Commissioner, Dr. Ann Cavoukian, on the Liberal gas scandal cover-up. Central to that report was this appeal I had launched after one of my Freedom of Information searches was thwarted by the Premier’s Office, then under Kathleen Wynne.

Here are Livingston and Miller swearing the Premier’s office had no substantive gas scandal documents along with seven other of McGoo’s key gas scandalers: Lauren Ramey, Wendy McCann, Kevin Spafford, John Brodhead, Neala Barton, Kareem Bardeesy and David Phillips. Ramey went on to become press secretary to Education Minister Liz Sandals. McCann is now Director of Strategic Communications for the Council of Ontario Universities. Brodhead is a fellow at the Mowat Centre think tank at the University of Toronto, was Executive Director at Evergreen CityWorks, and is now chief of staff to federal Infrastructure and Communities Minister Amarjeet Sohi. Neala Barton picked up a greasy gig as a Pan Am Games exec. Kareem Bardeesy is Deputy Principal Secretary for Premier Wynne. David Phillips went on to become Director of Strategic Engagement at the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
