CANADIAN GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY: NONEXISTENT
The Global Integrity 2008 Report has labeled Canada as so called "Moderate" in its World's Most Detailed Assessment of Government Integrity and Democracy. The report which assesses the strength and weakness of national level anti corruption system has also found that "Canada is struggling with the controlling influence of money in the political process." Among the areas that has received the lowest ratings in regards to corruption are legislative accountability, judicial accountability, civil service regulations and law enforcement. The report is also in the opinion of some also deficient. Compared to other countries around the world no serious actions has ever been taken against any Canadian government officials who has acted corruptly. There has been investigations plenty but for those corrupt government officials no direct punishments has ever really been handed out. They have somehow managed to avert all of this during the process. The worst that they have gotten is some bad publicity for their actions.
