Vancouver Winter 2010 overspend
Vancouver - The federal government has ordered a comprehensive audit of the millions of dollars it has given the organizers of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.
Just two weeks after it agreed to give the Vancouver Organizing Committee an extra $55 million to help finish sports venues, the new Conservative government has raised questions about whether the $290 million it is contributing through the Department of Canadian Heritage is being properly spent.
