The official website of Manitoba's Lt.-Gov. Philip Lee was hacked earlier today and a political message posted.
The message was removed within an hour of Lee's staff learning of it.
It was not known how long the message was up before it was removed.
"Our website was hacked by someone, our web people are on it, they'll be shutting down the site and they'll be putting in more security measures within the next 24 hours," said Phyllis Fraser, the chief of staff and private secretary to the lieutenant-governor. "It will be back up and running tomorrow (Wednesday)."
She said Lee was at the legislature on Tuesday for the NDP government's throne speech but would be informed of the website issue by the end of the day.
"We've never had this happen before so we will be tightening up some security on it to prevent it from happening again," Fraser said.
