Causeway Cited In AG’s Report
Auditor General Michael Pickup says the province has no plan to quickly manage an emergency response if something should happen to the Canso Causeway.
Pickup cites the only link between Cape Breton and the mainland as an example of a lack of risk assessments for government assets in his November report.
He also takes aim at the Department of Education’s process for building new schools.
Pickup says the Department does not have an established long-term capital planning process in place.
He adds a new $21 million school has been approved for Eastern Passage despite no analysis supporting it.
He also says four schools were approved by Cabinet, despite being ranked behind other unapproved projects on committee assessments.
