Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli believes the Liberals are deleting e-mails over the alleged bribe affair for the Sudbury provincial riding.

Fedeli says the good news is the issue came to light quickly meaning the OPP have time to recover potential evidence.

But he says the bad news is the Liberals may have learned a valuable lesson from the gas plant scandal where they deleted e-mails.

Fedeli says bribes are illegal in a democracy and if the allegations are true, it shows the Wynne Liberals will do anything to cling to power.

Fedeli says when the Liberals held Nipissing, his predecessor Monique Smith used a non government account to talk about the gas plant issue.

Fedeli believes e-mails exist over the Sudbury bribe allegations.

And he’s hopeful the OPP can gather the evidence on the allegations sooner than later.

Fedeli wants the Canadian watchdog group Democracy Watch, which champions accountability, to investigate the bribery claims.

As for Sudbury federal New Democrat Glenn Thibeault defecting to the Liberals, Fedeli hopes the public votes against him in a winter by-election.
