Where’s the missing $3.1 billion?

(It wasn’t me! Honest!)

Wasn't meSteve Harper and his Conservatives can’t find $3.1 billion of taxpayer money.

The money hasn’t gone missing, exactly, says auditor general Michael Ferguson.

It’s just that Harper et al can’t account for it. 🙁

“In his audit of the Public Security and Anti-Terrorism (PSAT) Initiative Ferguson suggested there should have been a government-wide review of spending and results for the program that was funded between 2001 and 2009,” says the CBC, adding.

“He found that departments reported spending $9.8 billion of the $12.9 billion allocated for security and anti-terrorism measures under the program but he couldn’t determine where the other $3.1 billion went. The Treasury Board had no clear answers for him.

“Ferguson said he’s not concerned the money is missing, it’s the information about it that can’t be nailed down.”

Oh. That’s okay, then.
