Auditor General Karen Hogan has told the House of Commons Finance Committee that she will not examine CERB abuses until 2023 at the earliest, according to Blacklock's Reporter.

Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre told Hogan that "we now know some of it went to criminals, scammers, people not living in Canada, people who received multiple payments in the same week even though that was not allowed."

"But [federal auditors] have not gone back and done verification on any of the recipients now," added Poilievre.

"We’re now almost two years after the CERB program began and you’re rewarding them by not beginning your audit until they’re good and ready which at this pace will be never."

In November, a Liberal MP admitted that Trudeau's CERB program during the pandemic undoubtedly was abused by scroungers.

Reports later confirmed that the number of people who claimed CERB was six times higher than the number of people who were made jobless by the pandemic.

"There is no doubt that when creating a program as quickly as we did, there is going to be some abuse of that program," said Liberal MP Kevin Lamoureux.

"I suspect when I hear from my Conservative friends they will highlight some of those problems which we are very much aware of," he added.
