Cape Breton Post - - Canada -

TORONTO — The lon­gawaited gas plants trial of two top aides to On­tario’s for­mer premier will start hear­ing ev­i­dence next Fri­day.

De­fence and pros­e­cu­tion told court they had ham­mered out their dis­clo­sure dif­fer­ences and were ready to pro­ceed then.

The first wit­ness is ex­pected to be a com­puter ex­pert. The trial of David Liv­ingston and Laura Miller was to have started last Mon­day. Both have pleaded not guilty to charges of breach of trust, mischief and un­law­ful use of a com­puter. The aides to for­mer premier Dal­ton McGuinty were charged over deleted emails re­lat­ing to the gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to can­cel two gas plants just be­fore the 2011 elec­tion.
