Martin and the Liberals were rocked by
a report from Auditor General Sheila
Fraser that sponsorship contracts
designed to increase the federal
government's status in Quebec resulted
in little to no work done. Many of the
agencies had Liberal ties, and roughly
$100 million of the $250 million in
program spending went missing. Martin
has stated that there has to have been
political direction but denies
involvement in, or knowledge of, the
sponsorship contracts, and has called a
public inquiry into what has come to be
known as the Sponsorship Scandal.
