This is nutz.
From Sheila Fraser’s office.
We will not release or comment on our audit report on the G8 Legacy Infrastructure Fund. Under the Auditor General Act, we can only present reports when Parliament is sitting. The Office of the Audit General of Canada remains the custodian of its reports until they are presented to the Speaker of the House of Commons for tabling.
So the report exists. It was going to be released on April 5. But it cannot be released because Parliament is not sitting. And Parliament is not sitting because we, the people of Canada, are in the process of making our minds up about who we want to be in the next Parliament.
And so information vital to all those decisions is being kept from us.
What universe does this make sense in?
Surely, there's somebody with both a backbone and access to the document who could do the country a giant favour?
UPDATE: There may be a workaround. 'Nothing wrong with setting a precedent.'
