I just sent an e-mail to Bill Rowe, who's filling in this week on Open Line for Randy Simms.
I'm posting a copy here:
Just heard you on Open Line, Bill.
As passionate as you've ever been. Good radio, I must say. I 100 per cent agree that Auditor General Sheila Fraser should be allowed to look at MP and Senate (don't forget the Senate) books. I investigated first hand what happened here, with our MHA scandal, and reviewed what happened in the UK and Nova Scotia.
The details were shocking, as you know. Not allowing the AG in automatically creates suspicion. The only way to stop that suspicion from growing — and it will grow — is to open the door and let Sheila Fraser in.
