FORMER BC premier Gordon Campbell has been named by Ontario Premier Doug Ford to head an independent inquiry into the finances of his province under the previous Liberal government.
Campbell will get $50,000 for six weeks’ work to find out what went wrong. The deadline for completion is August 30.
There will also be a line-by-line audit of government spending by outside companies to see how the finances can be fixed.
The government has fixed a maximum of $1 million to be spent on the inquiry and the audit.
