A provincial fund of $70 million in public money doesn’t just disappear.
One way to find out for sure would be to call in Auditor-General Bonnie Lysyk, which is just what a London-area MPP wants to do.
Progressive Conservative Jeff Yurek, who represents Elgin-Middlesex-London, has requested help from Lysyk — the independent watchdog who monitors how taxpayer money is spent, or misspent — to determine where the cash collected from Ontario hunters and anglers through licensing fees has gone.
“I’m hoping the auditor general gets back to us in a week or so,” Yurek told The Free Press Wednesday. “Really, I have no understanding of where the money is going.”
