The article informs that the Canadian federal government is considering funding to give Saskatchewan a First Nations auditor general. If the position is funded, Saskatchewan would be the first province to have such a position. First Nations leaders told the Canadian Press that having the office would allow them to show that problems that often have been blamed on their fiscal mismanagement are really related to the chronic under-funding of programs for their people. The Auditor General of Canada's office supports the plan, the Canadian Press quoted vice chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations as saying.
