The Auditor General’s report spoke of the fact that many government ministers had frequently made recommendations for immigration documents for foreign nationals.
Meighan’s former Deputy Director, Maria Marin, had made a list of all those ministers and the recommendations they made.
Today the committee revealed a portion of that list.
In one instance between March and August 2013, 248 Ministerial recommendations were made for foreign nationals.
In another instance between the 6th and 7th of June, 2013, 47 recommendations were made by those same ministers.
Again for the period of March to May, 2013, 96 recommendations were made again by elected government officials.
According to the Auditor General’s report, the recommendations were for mostly Chinese nationals and they were mostly recommended by former Minister of State, Elvin Penner.
