Conservatives Call on Government to Increase Auditor General’s Budget

At a news conference on Parliament Hill, Conservative finance critic Pierre Poilievre and Treasury Board critic Tim Uppal raise concerns about the level of funding provided by the federal government to the Office of the Auditor General. The Conservatives, who are proposing a motion that seeks to increase the auditor general’s budget, are also calling on that office to examine the economic programs introduced by the federal government in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
