Do the wheels of justice grind slower for the Ontario Liberal government than they do for Ottawa's Conservatives? That's the question being asked by many, including Lorrie Goldstein, columnist with the Toronto Sun.
In a recent column, he compares two investigations:
The RCMP probe into Canadian senators accused of fraud and breach of trust, and the OPP investigation into the Ontario Liberal gas plants scandal.
Both investigations began only a few months apart, but Goldstein notes that while the trials of Senators Mike Duffy, Patrick Brazeau and Mac Harb are proceeding, the OPP has yet to announce charges related to the gas plants scandal.
"This strikes me as odd," he writes. "[F]or heaven’s sake, this isn’t Watergate. Why is the OPP taking so long?"
Goldstein says that this apparent double standard in Canada's justice system would appear to show that "the Ontario Liberal government and the OPP are too close."
