Mr. Speaker, the minister is so transparent, we can see right through her.
We know that there is systemic mismanagement present in other government departments, such as CIDA and now Indian Affairs and Northern Development. In 1971 the Prime Minister was the minister of Indian affairs and he stated:
—we cannot spend millions of dollars without developing some criteria and rules for the administration of those moneys.
And yet, in an audit released while parliament was not sitting, as expected, why is the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development still doling out money to native chiefs if they are refusing to account for their spending?
