Re: “ ‘Boiling animosity’ splits MLAs, auditor,” Feb. 2.
Couldn’t Craig James answer his own question?
James: “Why do you want all 28,000 transactions?”
Reason: Because that is what auditors do, they audit transactions to verify legitimacy or expose financial discrepancies.
James: “I expect the Office of the Auditor General to provide the Legislative Assembly of B.C. with a plan.”
Here’s the plan: Due to the fact that the AG’s office could not decipher the bookkeeping at the legislature because it was such a mess that “he couldn’t determine whether any money was missing or misspent,” the AG’s office has requested the 28,000 transactions for further scrutiny.
Pretty much outlines what the plan is.
This just adds to the “transparency and restructuring of financial leadership,” as well as “better co-operation with the AG’s office,” as promised by MLAs.
