The independent MLA for Cariboo North Bob Simpson says it is time to make a report from the Auditor General on the government's efforts to become carbon neutral public.

The report was supposed to be released Tuesday, but the Speaker of the House postponed making it public, amid concerns it may have been leaked.

This comes after stories Tuesday criticizing the report and Auditor General John Doyle.
Letters were obtained by the Canadian Press were leaked from legal, business and environmental experts connected with the carbon offset industry who advised Doyle as he put together his report.

They questioned the report's accuracy and Doyle's objectivity and Simpson says it is time to put the report in the public domain.
