These financial statements are the responsibility of the <br />County's administration. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements <br />based on our audit. <br /> <br />We conducted our audit in accordance with Canadian generally accepted auditing standards. <br />Those standards require that we plan and perform an audit to obtain reasonable assurance <br />whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, <br />on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An <br />audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by <br />administration, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. <br /> <br />In our opinion, these consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the <br />financial position of the County as at December 31, 2005 and the results of its financial activities <br />and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with the accounting principles <br />prescribed by the Public Sector Accounting Board of the Canadian Institute of Chartered <br />Accountants. <br /> <br />KPMG LLP, a Canadian limited liability partnership is the Canadian <br />member rum of KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative. <br /> <br /> <br />Our audit was conducted for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic consolidated financial <br />statements taken as a whole. The current year's supplementary information included in Schedule <br />1 is presented for the purposes of additional analysis and is not a required part of the basic <br />consolidated financial statements. Such supplementary information has been subjected to the <br />auditing procedures applied in the audit of the basic consolidated financial statements and, in our <br />opinion, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the basic consolidated financial <br />statements taken as a whole. <br /> <br />II/tfftf Lf..P <br />----- <br /> <br />Chartered Accountants <br /> <br />Windsor, Canada <br />May 12, 2006 <br />
