EDMONTON, AB: Wildrose Shadow Finance Minister Derek Fildebrandt released the following statement on the Auditor General’s findings with regard to the Alberta Financial Services Corporation (AFSC):
“Today’s Auditor General’s report once again demonstrates how important oversight is for Alberta’s agencies, boards and commissions (ABCs), including the AFSC.
“Left untouched, very serious abuse of taxpayer dollars like the sports and concert tickets, limo rides and alcohol purchased by the AFSC board of directors can occur.
“Albertans deserve better and Wildrose will continue to urge the NDP government to hold ABCs accountable for their spending.”
Fildebrandt, who serves as chair of the Public Accounts Committee, said the committee may decide to follow up on this audit in the future.
