Auditor General: Sheila Fraser

We started this segment with a clip from Sheila Fraser speaking at a press conference in 2002 - just one year into her term as Canada's Auditor-General. She was delivering her findings on what became known as the Sponsorship scandal. That was Fraser's first big report and announcement and it set the tone for the rest of her tenure. From the beginning, it was clear that this auditor general meant business - and would mince no words.

Now, after 10 years on the job, the woman many say is the best government watchdog Canada has ever had - is on her way out. Her term is up, she officially steps down next week. Before she does, she joined us from Ottawa.
