Auditor General's Report: Highlights Of Michael Ferguson's Spring Briefing


OTTAWA - Highlights of the auditor general's spring report to Parliament, delivered Tuesday:

— National Defence failed to inform Parliament about the full costs of new jet-fighters, broke key procurement rules, and put the fix in for buying F-35s.

— Canada's border agency allowed forbidden medical devices and other health-related products to slip into the country, largely because it hasn't been communicating properly with Health Canada.

— Canada Revenue Agency needs to be sharper in identifying Canadians who fail to pay their income taxes.

— Transport Canada is not properly targeting high-risk flying operations for safety inspections and procedures.
