New details about the extent of a corruption probe into three Ontario government ministries prompted the opposition yesterday to demand the resignations of three cabinet ministers.

The OPP’s anti-rackets division raided the ministries of Transportation, Economic Development and Trade, and Community and Social Services July 15 as part of a probe into “irregular financial transactions” with outside vendors.

The search warrants remain sealed, but there were allegations government employees accepted cash and other kickbacks in exchange for inflating the value of government maintenance contracts and for telling one vendor the level of any competing bids.
