BC Liberal Party Premier Charges NDP with Hacking into Formers Website


Christy Clark, Premier of British Columbia has complained that New Democrats, the opposition party infiltrated her party's online site. However, because Ms. Clark did not provide any evidence to support her allegation, the New Democratic Party (NDP) chief threatened to move court till the Premier withdrew her complaint and expressed regrets.


The NDP demand confronted Ms. Clark with the question whether she should follow the request. Eventually she suggested with a firm stand that she didn't have an answer to their wishes.


According to Canada's legislation, it's a crime to hack any individual's PC while doing so could result in a maximum of 10-yr imprisonment. Theprovince.com posted this, February 9, 2017.


British Columbia Liberal Party asserts that somebody having the technical skills along with bad intentions acquired secret details provided via the party's website. All of the data-files hacked contain suggestions and queries from Vancouver Island's people regarding what they want the Liberals to address for the province's benefit.


While B.C. Liberals are still collating evidence, the party has directed the Information and Privacy Commissioner's Office towards examining the issue. The evidence collation relates to filing an official police report. However, a few clues have been unearthed ever-since Ms. Clark gave interviews to reporters.


Citing the upcoming election canvassing in Victoria province, Ms. Clark in one news conference said that the NDP's access to her party's website was illegal and an offensive act. She continued that irrespective of whether the opposition admitted its carrying out the act, she was not ready for expending an extensive length of time on the issue of NDP's campaign program i.e. if it will at all conduct one and if so in what manner.


As for evidence, B.C. Liberal stated that it had detected many IP addresses associated with efforts towards hacking BCLiberals.com.


Ms. Clark in one live interview on Facebook on February 7 with The Vancouver Sun and the Province reiterated that the NDP had indeed committed the hacking act. While stating that B.C. Liberals had seen the NDP attempt hacking its website, Ms. Clark actually referred to the opposition party's indication about a tough provincial election coming up.
