Why Not an Audit?

Ontario politics can be interesting at times.

I'd like to address the argument that the Opposition is "busy attacking the Liberal government for giving money to charities and community groups." This is untrue.

What is happening instead is the Opposition is busy holding the Liberal government to account for acknowledging that unadvertised grants were given without a formal application process and acknowledging that there isn't a clear audit about how the money was to be spent.

Premier Dalton McGuinty believes that this doesn't mean there isn't transparency - I'd like to know what his definition of transparency is.

The Opposition's concerns are fair and are ones a simple audit should be able to address.
