So why did Finance Minister Gary Collins, a former flight instructor, choose Harmony Airways as his private sector landing strip? Well it might have something to do with the fact the company owner, Hong Kong tobacco fortune heir David Ho, happens to be a big provincial and federal Liberal donor. Last year alone, Mr. Ho and his companies donated more than $102,000 to the provincial Liberals. And he contributed $100,000 to Prime Minister Paul Martin's leadership campaign.
