Statement from Minister Dombrowsky with regard to the Auditor General's report on Agricorp



    TORONTO, July 15 /CNW/ - I would like to thank the Auditor General of
Ontario for the tremendous effort he and his staff put into the
value-for-money audit of Agricorp, which I received yesterday. I look forward
to considering his recommendations.
    As Minister, my most important task is to provide essential support to
the farmers of Ontario. They told me of their concerns with regard to the
timeliness and accuracy of Agricorp's program delivery. I requested the
value-for-money audit. Now I am asking Ontario's farmers to review the
auditor's findings.
    The report is available at http://www.auditor.on.ca/en/reports_en.htm or
by contacting the Auditor General of Ontario's office. I would encourage
farmers to read the report carefully, and provide me with the feedback I need
to make a considered decision.
    I look forward to receiving the advice of farmers from across the
province on this important issue by mid-September, 2008.

    To receive copies of the report, please call the Auditor General of
Ontario's Office at 416-327-2381.
