Nova Scotia's auditor general says the province approved a new 21 million dollar, Halifax-area school despite evidence it wasn't needed. Michael Pickup says no one in government can appropriately explain why a new high school in Eastern Passage is being built despite concerns about the impact it would have on existing schools in the area. Progressive Conservative Tim Houston says the auditor general revealed a system of "schools for votes" and change is needed in how new schools are chosen. (In the case of Eastern Passage, Education Minister Karen Casey says the community had an expectation the school would be built and the government decided to honour the approval granted by the previous NDP government.)
