So here is an opening question for all Islanders: How dumb are we?
Now you may think that is a little rude? Perhaps. But stupidity and ignorance is the only explanation for allowing PEI politicians to run roughshod over us and govern in a manner that will – not may
– decimate our standing as an economically viable province.
The Auditor General report is an annual counter-balance to the puff and spin that passes as governance in PEI. Once a year, the auditor shines a bright light into the dark workings of government.
How does government spend taxpayers’ money? Are rules followed? Is there adequate transparency? Are we dealing with issues now or simply passing them on to future generations?
There are answers to all of these questions in the 2014 report.
