Disclosure wrangling persists in Ontario gas plants trial; new delay possible

The long-awaited gas plants trial of two top aides to Ontario's former premier in Toronto could be delayed yet again.

As happened earlier in the week, the defence complained Thursday again about a lack of information provided by the prosecution.

Lawyers for David Livingston and Laura Miller said they might need another week-long adjournment _ until Sept. 25.

Instead, the judge made it clear he wants the trial started, and sent the parties to a room to work out their differences.

They later emerged to say they had made some progress and would report back on Friday.

The aides to then-premier Dalton McGuinty face three charges over deleted emails about the Liberal government's decision to cancel two gas plants just before the 2011 election.
