Did Harper Take $15 Million From Alberta and Give it to Tony Clement?

This should thrill Albertans. Apparently the Harper government took $15 million earmarked for Alberta and instead funnelled it into Tony Clement's re-election campaign.
“Why did it disappear? It doesn’t just evaporate,” said Boucher, a former RCMP superintendent. “The investigation will prove it. We know the $15 million disappeared. We know that there’s millions that were taken from border security infrastructure and moved to Tony Clement’s (riding). I think we’re going to see two plus two here.”

The draft auditor general report said the Harper government did not act “clearly” and “transparently” when it sought permission from Parliament to spend $50 million on the G8 Legacy Infrastructure Fund that delivered 32 projects for the Parry Sound-Muskoka riding in southern Ontario represented by Clement.
They really take Alberta for granted don't they?
