No, they very rarely do that. When they do, they are racists and interfering in self govt initiatives. They are not welcome unless ebaring money.
With the exception of the recent case in Ontario, no one ever hears about a band who is in remediation.
Once again - how would you know when all you hear is what is in the media? Which is nothing.
I don't blame the First Nations at all for this, the quality of DIAND mgmt is frightful for the reason I explained earlier in the thread. I know you audit bands, but auditors just make sure everything adds up to zero.
Yes, it is a financial audit. Nevertheless, reports are filed with the government. They know what the money is being spent on - water infrastructure, sewer, health, etc... They can and do use that information.
Not very well, perhaps, but they do use it much more than people realize.
