No ques­tion on AG au­dit

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

To­day’s lead head­line (“Pos­si­ble probe”) brings back into the spot­light the story of Olive Crane’s abuse of the “slush” fund our Is­land political par­ties are given from tax­pay­ers’ pock­ets to sup­pos­edly help run their of­fices. It shows me noth­ing has changed with re­gard to our pro­vin­cial govern­ment’s abuse of our money. So much for the new govern­ment’s “open­ness, trans­parency and ac­count­abil­ity”.

P.E.I. au­di­tor gen­eral Jane Ma­cAdam’s re­ac­tion does noth­ing to make me think this is­sue will go away. She says she is “aware of the pub­lic dis­cus­sions on the is­sue” but an au­dit is “not cur­rently on her planned au­dit sched­ule.” “I will con­sider it,” Ma­cAdam said.

How very big of you, Ms. Au­di­tor Gen­eral, how very big of you. Lloyd Kerry, Char­lot­te­town
