SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. — Premier Kathleen Wynne’s election team broke the local catholic school board’s computer policy when it displayed the party’s logo on computers during a classroom campaign stop Wednesday.

Progressive Conservative candidate Rod Fremlin issued a press release about the breach at Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School, which the school board’s director of education confirmed.

“The staging in the media resource room at the school was done by (Liberal Party) staff and yes, the computers were used without permission,” director John Stadnyk said.

The board’s computer use policy prohibits political lobbying on its computers or equipment.

Stadnyk said he informed Liberal candidate David Orazietti about the policy and he said board staff will keep a closer watch at such events in the future.

“If they had asked we would have advised them of the policy and told them to use their own equipment,” Stadnyk said.
