B.C. government criticized for decision to not renew A.G.'s contract
The leaders of the province's Green and Conservative parties are joining the NDP in criticizing a government decision not to renew the six-year contract of Auditor General John Doyle. The decision was made by a government committee. Its chairman Eric Foster says he is legally bound not to explain the reasons behind the decision, although consent must be unanimous to renew the contract. B.C. Green Party Leader Jane Sterk says the government should have deferred the matter entirely until after the May election. B.C. Tory Leader John Cummins says Doyle was simply too good at his job, taking the government to task on issues like spending and the budget.
