Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk is working to fix an issue with his email service that may lead to the loss of millions of dollars.
Melnyks website was hacked on Tuesday night, causing his emails to be lost.
He is also in talks with some companies about potentially relocating to Canada to continue to operate as an American company.
Senator Glenn Thibeault of Manitoba said he was concerned about the issue.
He told CBC News he thinks it’s very concerning that we’re losing a good chunk of the time to emails that we receive from Eugene Melnick.
Thibeauds email is a service that is used to send emails from senators and staff.
Senator Thibeaux said he contacted Melnyck on Tuesday afternoon and asked if he had any information on the issue and whether he was aware of the issue being reported.
“I was told he was working on a fix and I asked him what his thoughts were on the situation and he said it was his concern and it was a concern for him as a senator,” Thibeau said.
Melnick is currently on leave from the Senators, but he did not respond to CBC News’ requests for comment on Wednesday.
Senators sent Melnykos email account, which was also hacked, after the website crashed.
According to the Senators website, Melnycks email service is a free service that does not include a password.
Thibetes spokesperson said Melnyki is not currently working on any fixes to his service.
Melonyks website crashed after the breach and he is no longer providing emails, but Thibeaut said he is in talks to start moving forward with moving his company to Canada.
Thicke told the CBC that he has not heard from Melny, and that the Senators are working on an email provider in Canada.
The Senators are the only Canadian team that plays at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
The team is owned by a Canadian company.
The Ottawa Senators have not commented on the matter, but Melnykk told the Ottawa Citizen he had contacted Melnick about the problem and he has “no idea how this happened.”
Senator John Ohlin of Manitoba called the issue concerning.
He said he does not know if Melny was aware his emails were being lost.
Ohlin is one of two senators in the chamber that are based in Ottawa.
He called the outage “disconcerting.”
Ohlin said Melnick has been a friend for decades and is an excellent friend to his constituents.
“We were hoping that this would not happen,” he said.
The website of Senator Thibert is offline, and Senators’ mailboxes are also offline.
The senator is not the only senator with an email account that was hacked.
Conservative Senator Wayne Easter told CBC Ottawa that he lost his account after the email was hacked and that he received an email from Melnick the following day asking for help.
“It is unfortunate that Senator Thibie is the one who is at risk,” Easter said.
“He has a good reputation and he will be a good senator and a good member of Parliament.”
