Ted Morton accused of email hijinks

Investigation reveals second government account

Alberta Progressive Conservative leadership candidate Ted Morton is under fire after the CBC revealed his use of a dummy email account while he was the Minister of Sustainable Resources. Morton communicated with his staff under the name Frederick Lee, his real first and middle names, in what some believe was an attempt to dodge future freedom of information requests. Adding fuel to the fire were revelations Morton’s staff shredded documents and erased emails after the former professor left his portfolio to run for the leadership.
