More than three-quarters of a million dollars in student funds was misspent, a forensic audit
of Vancouver's Kwantlen University College student association finances has found. "It's been a pretty long process because the financial records from 2006 were 'lost.' "
The audit also revealed that $140,000 was paid to former executive members, including former student association chair Aaron Takhar.
Takhar made headlines last May when he was arrested on drug charges
after RCMP found 170 marijuana plants in a car that he had rented. His friend, 18-year-old Daljit Sandhu of Richmond, was discovered dead in the Nechako River near Vanderhoof after he drove the rented Ford Escape off a side-road and into the water.
