OPINION: Bellringer found all three offices — clerk, sergeant-at-arms, Speaker — had engaged in spending practices that would never have passed muster in any government ministry. Nor did she let anyone off the hook: “There’s quite a few people who dropped the ball on this one”
“…Plecas refused to answer media questions about the auditor general’s finding that travel expense spending in the Speaker’s office had grown from $20,000 to $60,000 in the space of a year !!!! “
Nor does it appear that the finance and audit committee sought an explanation for the tripling???
