NS Gov't Wants Auditor General Reviewing Bluenose II

The Nova Scotia government wants the auditor general to review ballooning costs related to the Bluenose II rebuild in Lunenburg. Premier Stephen McNeil states there are too many questions surrounding the project. The AG's review will shed some light on why the project is so over budget.. Earlier this week, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation revealed through a freedom of information request that some supplies for the schooner were purchased at a 43 percent mark-up price. It's believed the cost of the project has soared over its $16 million price-tag.
