Mismanagement at Canada's Indian department
Three senior officials at the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs in Canada were suspended with pay during an investigation that found they mismanaged at least $10 million.

Auditors said they found no evidence of a crime or wrongdoing. But they said the officials shortchanged the government of nearly $8 million as part of a First Nations power deal and overpaid $1.2 million for a First Nations land claim settlement.

The officials are located in Manitoba. "It is Indian money, it is our money, and we'd like to know how it's being spent at the departmental level," Morris Swan Shannacappo, the grand chief of Southern Chiefs' Organization, told CBC News.
