Kingston-area MPP Arthur alleges LFK MPP Hillier used constituent information without consent
A Kingston-area MPP has complained to the provincial integrity commissioner, alleging that LFK independent MPP Randy Hillier used constituent information for partisan purposes without their consent.
In a letter shared with Global News, Ian Arthur said his office received information from two constituents claiming that Hillier obtained their personal information through “casework” and used it to sign them up for both the People’s Party of Canada and Hillier’s No More Lockdown group mailing lists.
One of the constituents Rob Briden says his email address was given to the “no more lockdowns” group. When he complained, an email from Hillier’s address said, “I’m sorry you believe freedom is spam, I was under the impression freedom & Justice was somewhat important to you. You can unsubscribe at any time.”
MPP Arthur said he received two complaints about the emails and felt compelled to act.
