Auditor General demands stimulus accountability

No easy ride from Fraser just because of recession


Sheila Fraser, the federal auditor general, has served notice that she won’t be going easy on the government’s stimulus spending package. And Fraser, who became a household name to many Canadians for her reports on the sponsorship scandal back in 2004, appears to side with the opposition, in calling for at least some advance details on where the Tories plan to spend that $3-billion fast-track fund they are insisting be established with virtually no strings attached.
