The year: 2008.
The case: Auditor General John Noseworthy suddenly took it in his head that the offshore regulatory board fell within his jurisdiction.
Right out of the blue without any warning.
And it was odd too, because despite mounds of evidence that the board wasn’t subject to the provincial auditor general and that Noseworthy’s office didn’t think it had the legal right to audit the board (it has only recently been added to the list of entities subject to audit), Noseworthy threw a major-league tantrum.
In the end, Noseworthy quietly started to review the board in 2009.
In early 2011 – three full years after the racket started – Noseworthy still hasn’t issued a report on the board nor has he indicated when - if ever - it might appear.
How very odd.
Something about that year stands out.
What could it be?
That was the year of Danny Williams’ jihad against Stephen Harper if memory serves.
Maybe it was just a coincidence.
Wonder where John’s report is?
