The Commons public accounts committee yesterday agreed to summon federal managers to justify an $8 million expense for a solar-powered warehouse at Rideau Hall. It follows a separate report demanding that Governor General Mary Simon cut spending on Beef Wellington and silk jackets.

“It is our obligation to ensure taxpayer dollars are wisely spent,” said Conservative MP Jake Stewart (Miramichi-Grand Lake, N.B.). “This includes reviewing who at the National Capital Commission and the Treasury Board approved $8 million for a barn at Rideau Hall.”
