Justice John Gomery, the Quebec judge whose public inquiry in the sponsorship scandal helped defeat the federal Liberals in January, was spotted strutting through the east door of the Ontario Legislature late Thursday.
Either that or it was Gomery’s twin brother.
The famed jurist’s appearance in the provincial seat of government had tongues wagging among the Liberals and the NDP. Strangely, the Progressive Conservatives were conspicuously silent about the apparent Gomery sighting.
Perhaps he was popping by the visit the Tories, where he would be a welcome visitor.
After all, if he could do to Premier Dalton McGuinty what he did to former prime minister Paul Martin, there would be some happy Ontario PCs come the 2007 election.
