There are lots of questions remaining about the BC Rail scandal…. the biggest being WHY DID THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT PICK UP THE $6 MILLION DEFENCE LAWYERS’ TAB FOR TWO CONVICTED CRIMINALS????
This week I had a chance to keep that question …and story …alive, by appearing on broadcaster Stirling Faux on-line business show This Week in Money. Here’s the link….turn up your sound:
The mainstream media may believe ..and want…this story to go away. But it will NOT … until we know:
Who recommended to Cabinet the government pick up the criminals’ legal bill?
Who in Cabinet made the motion to pay the $6 million?
Was this part of a deal to get Basi-Virk to take ALL responsbility for criminal actions that also involved others?
Was any other government employee, elected Member of the Legislature , government or Liberal party advisor involved ..or have ANY knowledge of the information/benefits being provided illegally to and through Basi-Virk?
Was $6 million therefore the cost to shut Basi-Virk up?
These questions can ONLY be answered by an official inquiry, conducted by a judge with subpoena and evidence powers. And they will NOT go away until the public gets the answers.
