The CTF also wants to see the auditor general's office -- which has a mandate to ensure taxpayers' dollars are spent appropriately -- to receive an additional $500,000.
"We recognize it's a bit of an aberration to call on the government to actually spend money, but this is one area we believe more resources are needed," said Batra. Auditor general Jon Singleton welcomed the support.
"We have a pretty big backlog of allegations of inappropriate practices and many of them we'll never get to," said Singleton, noting a $500,000 increase would allow him to hire three new staff.
