Liberal MPs fear scathing auditor's report could hurt election chances


OTTAWA (CP) - Liberal MPs say they fear an explosive auditor general's report Tuesday could erase a decade's worth of credibility on fiscal issues and put the party on fragile footing on the eve of an expected federal election.


Quebec MP Nick Discepola said Sheila Fraser's long-awaited report on the federal sponsorship and advertising scandal could have an immeasurable impact, and the mood among MPs is one of "great apprehension."

"The anticipation is that it will be a very scathing report attacking the credibility that it took us 10 years to build.


Up until this point, we've always been perceived by the Canadian public as very sound prudent administrators. And if all of a sudden this amount (of misspent money) comes out, it doesn't matter if it's $50 million or $100 million . . . It will hurt us.


Eventually, we're going to really, really suffer the consequences at the polls."
