Conservatives Caught - Apologize To Auditor General For Using Her 2004 Quote As Comment On G8/G20 - What are you guys doing??
"It has recently come to my attention that I have been quoted in the Committee's 11 th Report, Effectiveness, Management and Operation of 1h Expenses Incurred the for the GEIG20 Summits, that was presented to the House on March 25 , 2011. The quote Is included in the Supplementary Opinion to the Report it appears to have been retrieved from an interview with the CSC In 2010, that refers to the findings of our March 2004 report on national security spending following the September 2001 attacks on the United States. Therefore, the comments attributed to me in the Report are completely unrelated to G81G20 spending. I did not appear as a witness before your committee on this subject. Furthermore, I do not comment on audit findings until the related report has been tabled in Parliament. We had planned to table our audit on the G8/G20 expenditures this month, but cannot do so due to the election. We hope to present that report shortly after Parliament resumes, in June. I would appreciate it if the Report could be modified as it is clearly erroneous. Yours sincerely,
Auditor General Of Canada"
