Kicking the Auditor General out? Kathy Dunderdale is turning into Brian Tobin.

Is this bantering on between the media & the government going to keep continuing?? Not to mention the constant backlash & wave after wave of hollering at Premier Dunerdale to "Open the House" going to keep up until they actually do open the House in March. Can't wait until March can't we?? If people are so angry about it then pitch a tent in front of the Confederation Bldg & stay there night & day until they DO open the House. Obviously, people are going to keep up the bantering & criticism & bashing of the government until they listen to you, right? The Dunderdale government can't do ANYTHING right, judging by the constant wave of angry callers, angry letters, & angry comments posted everywhere. And it's only January. Are we in for another 4 more years of "War on the PC government"?

The Telegram is right and Dunderdale is wrong, period. The Auditor General may think that he knows where tax payer money was spent and why because the Government told him so. However, the Auditor General should never take the Government at its word. The Government says: "Take our word for it." The Auditor General requires the production of documentation from Government departments to confirm what he thinks he knows. That is the function of the Auditor General. All expenditures in Government must be accounted for and confirmed by way of a paper trail that can be audited for accuracy and compliance with the Financial Administration Act. Otherwise, if the Auditor General is not permitted to review the documents and the circumstances under which the expenditure of money was approved and carried out, there may be mistakes, fraud or misappropriation going on inside Government which the Auditor General cannot detect. That situation is not acceptable. Open all of the books including Cabinet documents, Premier. Let's make sure there is nothing illegal, improper, unethical or incompetent going on. I smell something burning here, I hope it is not because someone in Government is burning the documents or cooking the books! Never trust a "Take our word for it." Government! Keep up the good work Mr. Lovey's and continue to speak truth to power and demand that changes be made that allows the Auditor General complete access to all Government documents and departments.

I would say, the Telegram is printing what alot of people are wondering or thinking. If you want info to get to the people, have the house opened, then you don't have to worry any lines being crossed as journalists can then quote politicians and report on our progress. The other choice is keep the house closed and have Paul Lane call into Open Line regularly to lead the cheer and encourage the kool aid beverage, whcih seems to be status quo.
