THE RECENT AUDITOR GENERAL REPORTS are free of scandal, but the same cannot be said of findings between 2005 and 2007. Leader of Government Business in the Senate, Maxine McClean, made that assertion while delivering the wrap-up presentationin the Upper House Wednesday night.  “As I read the Auditor General’s reports, I was glad there was an absence of scandal. I want to say that if you want to see scandal, one should check out the Auditor General’s reports for 2007, for example,” she said.  McClean said the reports for the year 2007 highlighted concerns in the Ministry of Energy and the Environment in relation to contracts.
