Another Aboriginal Triumph

Well, there's one thing they're good at... screwing over the "Great White Mother".
-- WINNIPEG -- A Manitoba native group misspent more than $6 million in federal health-care funds on exotic trips and unjustified payments to the organization's CEO, a federal audit has revealed.

The audit revealed several examples of questionable spending, including insufficiently supported payments to chiefs and councils, questionable travel claims and professional fees for third-party firms that were paid to the group's CEO.
Just one question here...

If the government has enough accountants and computing power to suck regular taxpayers dry... why can't they track this larceny?
Health Minister Tony Clement blamed the mismanagement of funds on the former Liberal government, and said Health Canada is taking steps to ensure the government has more control over future funding agreements.

"I think when the Liberals were in power and this occurred, political oversight and accountability wasn't something they were terribly interested in."
Ah yes, the Fiberals...

"Your money, their friends."

LAST WORD: And Jesus wept...
