Like kangaroos, politicians are a peculiar species, given to strutting and kicking. Coverups are second nature as they try to hide their tracks — fiscal, political and personal — to throw rivals off the scent.

The Liberals first predicted a $6.7 billion in their last spring budget, while the auditor general pegged it at $11.7 billion . Not to be outdone, the Tories came to power insisting on a $15 billion figure — since deflated to $12.3 billion when the financial accountability officer gave a second opinion Monday.

But predators, partisans and premiers are always in hot pursuit. Doug Ford created a legislative committee last September to ferret out the truth about "quite possibly the worst political coverup in Ontario's history."
