Where is your money going?

Environment Canada has a listing of organizations which are receiving grants from EC of more the $25,000. While I applaud their openness, there isn't a lot of detail to allow me to decide if this is a good use of my tax dollars. For example, why does the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers need $34,000 of my money? And why are aboriginal groups so disproportionately represented? Maybe all of these grants serve excellent purposes, but unfortunately this "proactive disclosure" raises more questions than it answers.
