Well, this should be interesting.
The Globe and Mail reports that the Ontario Provincial Police are investigating staff in the Ontario Ministry of Transportation and the Ontario Realty Corporation over alleged "irregular" financial dealings with the private sector.
A source familiar with the probe said OPP officers armed with search warrants arrived at the Transportation Ministry's offices last Thursday, where they examined computer files dealing with the purchase of goods and services from private-sector suppliers.
The raid also involved Ontario Realty Corp. and a government official confirmed on the weekend that employees at the Ontario government's real estate arm are also under investigation.
OPP officials said the force's anti-rackets branch, which handles complex fraud investigations, has launched a probe into "irregular financial transactions" involving unnamed government ministries and outside suppliers.
The Ontario Realty Corp is the Ontario government's arms-length real estate entity, which manages both occupied government buildings and vacant land - including the proposed East Mountain location for the Pan Am stadium - on behalf of the government.
