It was a shocking spectacle, but unless you were channel-surfing, you missed it: A government inquiry. Witnesses on the hot seat. Fiscal discrepancies, with lots of zeroes. No, it wasn't the Gomery commission. Actually, the sums of money involved are much larger. I'm talking about the inquiry into Ottawa's budget forecasts. Year after year, the Finance Minister claims the fiscal cookie jar is empty. Then, year after year, Ottawa books another "unexpectedly large" surplus.
