Problems Keep Comin' to the New Prime Minister

It seems Martin does not have good and easy days as the Prime Minister. Auditor general issued a report on Federal Government advertising and sponsorship program which leads the opposition MPs question Martin as finance minister under authority of Jean Chretien if he knew about millions of dollars which was wasted between 1997 and 2003.
Let's get to detail. First of all what is sponsorship program? The program designed to increase the federal presence in communities across Canada by providing funds to support cultural events. The Government has spent $250 million in the said time interval for 1987 events. $100 million out of this $250 million was paid as commissions to some agencies!
