Auditor General concerned about G-8 spending.

The interim auditor general says the Harper government spent 50 million dollars on G-8 and G-20 summit-related projects without telling Parliament, and without any paperwork.  The money was taken from a fund that Parliament approved to reduce border congestion. 
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird justifies the government's actions by saying the money had to be found quickly because there was a recession underway. 
Wiersema's (WORSE-i-mah) report put a spotlight on the G-8 and G-20 spending. He talks with Bayshore Broadcasting news reporter Kevin Bernard.
