The federal Conservatives are calling for the auditor-general to look into the government’s use of consulting firm McKinsey.
The Tories say closer scrutiny is needed because of its past ties to China and the opioid crisis.
McKinsey’s received at least $120-million in government contracts the last seven years – much more than the company got when Stephen Harper was prime minister.
The Conservatives say McKinsey’s been involved in ”so many scandals around the world,”pointing to its previous work with opioid maker Purdue Pharma, and authoritarian regimes like China and Saudi Arabia.
”Canadians deserve answers,” according to Garnett Genuis, Conservative’s International Development critic.
”They deserve answers not simply on how much of their money was spent, but what exactly their money was spent on and what value they got from these contracts.”
