Dwight Ball's Liberal government is doing nothing to deal with controversy surrounding Muskrat Falls. We need an immediate forensic audit to identify underlying issues with the project and restore confidence in our provincial institutions.
A forensic audit follows the paper trail to determine, to a high level of reliability, who knew what and when. A forensic audit takes place in the back rooms and need disturb no one directly concerned with efficiently finishing the power dam at Muskrat Falls.
But audits are not alone suited to evaluating the credibility of information from witnesses. If a determination of the credibility of witness testimony is necessary, then a public inquiry, which hears testimony under oath and subject to cross-examination, is the way to obtain the truth.
