Dorward & Company LLP served as the auditor tasked with safeguarding the integrity of the United Conservative Party of Canada's leadership vote. This small firm has family and financial relationships with Jason Kenney a candidate and ultimately the winner of the leadership vote. At the very least there is an appearance of a conflict of interest and at its worst, there could be purposeful impropriety. There is ample evidence that Mr. David Dorward is still involved in the firm despite his insistence that he turned the frim over to others. The long history of Mr. Dorward with the Conservative and UCP parties combined with the numerous fines issued by the Alberta election commissioner confirms that there was definitive impropriety in this election process.

These improprieties were either ignored by or escaped Dorward & Company LLP regardless of which the CPA standard was not met. The fact that none of these discretions were noted or addressed by Dorward & Company LLP suggests that there may have been willful negligence or gross incompetence in performing a duty that is integral to continued confidence in our democratic processes. 

We believe that CPA Canada in its mandate of ensuring "The Canadian Ideal of Good Business" should rightfully be concerned that members of their association failed in their obligation and duties. Furthermore, we do not believe that the good name of those with the designation of CPA are served well by letting such behaviour go unchecked. For the good of the public, the reputation of CPA's across Canada and in the interest of protecting our democracy we seek action. Taking all of the above into account we hereby ask that CPA Canada open a full investigation into this matter and publicly report their findings.
