Alberta’s Privacy Commissioner says the cell phone data of former deputy premier Thomas Lukaszuk was leaked by another cabinet minister.
Lukaszuk was running for the Tory leadership when information about thousands of dollars of cell phone and data costs incurred by Lukaszuk while he was in Europe was leaked to an Edmonton newspaper in August 2014.
The Privacy Commissioner found the information was leaked in contravention of the Freedom and Privacy Act by another cabinet minister.
However, the privacy commissioner did not determine who might have leaked the information, saying it was outside the scope of the investigation.
The investigation did find that the information that was leaked did not contain any vital personal information.
