Montreal: A whiff of scandal

Something smells fishy:

Until he was safely re-elected, Mayor Gerald Tremblay and his administration wanted the people of this city to learn almost nothing about how last summer's costly World Aquatics Championships were being run. Even now some hard questions about the project have not been answered.

Federal Court affidavits unsealed this month show how city hall, the games organizing committee and the Federation Internationale de Natation managed
the news. Taxpayers, in city hall's view, were welcome to pay $44 million for the games, but not welcome to know what was going on behind the scenes. It's a chilling example of manipulative paternalism.
I bet lawyers are very involved.
