Derailing the Gravy Train

The call for oversight & accountability gets markedly louder...
A former auditor general is asking why members of Parliament are refusing to permit a special audit of their expenses, saying they are acting as if they have something to hide.

"Well, I'm mystified," said Ken Dye, Canada's auditor general from 1981 to 1991.

"Why are they being reluctant to being transparent? I think they’re condemning themselves, telling the world, 'We’re afraid that you’re going to find something, so we’re not going to let you find it.'"
C'mon, Prime Minister... do the right thing.
