It’s the black hole of the Sunshine List — a giant vacuum of nothingness.

Here’s where to find it:

A raft of Dalton McGuinty-era cabinet ministers quit in 2013.

Dwight Duncan, Chris Bentley, Laurel Broten, Margarett Best and McGuinty himself all left office.

Naturally, I looked in the annual list of people making more than $100,000 to see how much they’d taken in severance.

The only person there was former energy minister Chris Bentley who, according to the document, made $165,851 in 2013.

According to the Sunshine List, McGuinty was paid $174,694. I was baffled because, when he quit, it was estimated he’d take more than $300,000 in severance.

Then I checked to see how much McGuinty’s staff were paid in severance.

Again, names I expected to be on it weren’t there.

I asked Premier Kathleen Wynne’s office about these omissions.
