VICTORIA – Honourable Linda Reid, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, today issued the Legislative Assembly's annual Accountability Report 2015‐16: A Report to British Columbians.

The report also includes the Assembly's independently audited financial statements, and detailed information on the Assembly's financial administration. For the third year in a row, BC's Office of the Auditor General has confirmed that the financial statements are reliable and fair.
