DFO breaks spending rules

Surprise, surprise another federal department failed to realize the federal spending rules applied to them.

This time the culprit is the Department of Fisheries. According to an audit the DFO spend $160 million in 2000-2001 to buy fishing licences, boats and gear for Mi'kmaq natives in Atlantic Canada. DFO failed to keep proper records and following spending rules.
