The opposition NDP says if the provincial government doesn't go the RCMP about a troubled carbon capture project at the University of Regina, it will.

The NDP's Trent Wotherspoon has been raising the issue in the legislature almost every week since the spring session began.

It concerns a story CBC News reported earlier in February about an untendered contract between IPAC-CO2 at the U of R and a company called Climate Ventures Inc., or CVI.

Wotherspoon said Wednesday that opposition MLAs have obtained a report that claims CVI used assets paid for with public money to do work for other clients.

"That government created with taxpayers' money CVI that with all the evidence appears to be little more than a flow-through scheme to rip off public dollars," Wotherspoon said in the legislative chamber. "This report is scathing."

The government says the report Wotherspoon talking about actually sparked another — forensic — audit into the issue.

The government noted the subsequent report found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing.
