After stonewalling demands from a multitude of sources, including the Association Of Crown Prosecutors, for a public inquiry into corruption in the  public construction sector  the Charest government has found a convenient target to deflect the spotlight. It was announced recently that the newly formed anti-corruption squad will investigate the administration of the city of Montreal. It is not clear precisely what instances of alleged corruption are to be rooted out, since thus far the main scandals alleged seem to involve city officials spying on each other in attempts to uncover evidence of corruption. In fact, the former Liberal cabinet member, His Worship Mayor Gerald Tremblay, claims to have turned over evidence of corruption on the part of city officials to the provincial police for further investigation. This begs the question: which probe will have priority, the one relating to investigator Tremblay or the one regarding investigatee Tremblay?
