Mrs. Diane Ablonczy (Calgary—Nose Hill, Ref.)

Mr. Speaker, shame on this minister for trying to bluster her way out of her incompetence.
It is becoming painfully obvious that it is open season for waste, fraud and abuse of tax dollars from Ottawa. An audit says that at least $1 billion was shockingly mismanaged by the minister. A grant approved for one riding mysteriously turned up in the Prime Minister's riding. The minister's explanation is completely contradicted by the grant recipient. Now $100,000 may have been skimmed from yet another grant in the Prime Minister's riding.
Are Canadians to believe that the red flags flying over public moneys going into Shawinigan are just pure coincidence?
