NDP claim Clement controlled G-8 slush fund

The NDP believe they have dug up information that's damaging to FedNor minister Tony Clement. Thunder Bay MP Bruce Hyer says his party has discovered the Harper government set up a slush fund for last year's G8 meetings in a way designed to avoid scrutiny by the auditor general. Hyer claims that Clement secretly funnelled 50 million dollars in G-8 money from FedNor through his constituency office.
