Mr. Speaker, today the auditor general confirmed the HRDC minister has been grossly exaggerating, even fabricating, the jobs supposedly created from her free-spending ways. I quote:
Project officers did not properly monitor the number of jobs created.
I quote again:
HRDC counted all the jobs created by a project, regardless of the extent of its contributions toward the project's total cost.
Why does the minister insult Canadians with pretend numbers when she knows she cannot back them up with facts?
