The allegations from interim Ontario Provincial Police commissioner Brad Blair about who will succeed him as the province's top cop amount to a political earthquake. Blair and many in the OPP are up in arms because they believe the fix was in for a hostile takeover of the very police force that polices our politicians in power.

Now, Ontarians are facing their own moment of truth as the layers of deception are peeled back from the premier's alleged secret meddling over the next OPP chief. Doug Ford's loyal chief.

Sound familiar? Just ask our American friends, who have been wrestling with the spectre of obstruction of justice ever since Donald Trump won the presidency — and trampled on the FBI by firing its director, James Comey.
