OTTAWA — An IP address connected to the Vikileaks30 Twitter account — which has been burning up the Twittersphere with claims about Public Safety Minister Vic Toews’ personal life — originates within the House of Commons, it has been revealed.

The Vikileaks30 Twitter account surged into public prominence in the wake of the tabling of new legislation that would allow increased police surveillance of the Internet and those that use it.

In a bid to determine the origin of the account, which posted a string of tweets online offering alleged details relating to Toews’s divorce proceedings, the Ottawa Citizen undertook an investigation on Thursday.

An email was sent to the writer of the Vikileaks30 Twitter account, containing a link to a website. The website was monitored by the Citizen and only the author of Vikileaks30 had the address of the website.
