EDMONTON (660 NEWS) – After getting multiple requests from Albertans and members of the MLA’s regarding the COVID-19 crisis, Doug Wylie says he is going to review the government’s response to the pandemic.

“Like other Auditors General across the country, we are paying close attention to the government’s response to the pandemic crisis,” Wylie said.

Wylie adds he has already noticed some interesting areas such as the impact on vulnerable citizens and activities designed to improve the economy.

Initial findings will not be presented to the Legislative Assembly until the fall, and more details on the audit will come at a later date.
