As noted above, 7 weeks later and all we have to show for it? :
Audit bid 'backward'
An update on progress of the audit was provided Monday in the form of a written letter from the regional director of municipal services for the ministry.
A pool of "pre-screened, qualified accounting firms" have already been contacted and were requested to submit a bid to conduct the WUC audit, according to the letter from Micheline Riopelle.
The process to submit bids closed Sept. 23 and ministry staff are evaluating the applications, she said.
Doesn't everyone feel warm and fuzzy knowing that the speedy and expedited process by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs is progressing so well. As we head into next week with no auditor and no terms of reference published, the choice of a Ministry Audit as opposed to an Audtior General's Audit becomes exposed for nothing more than the political manouevering that it was.
