The indispensable man

The provincial Greens didn't raise much money during the election - just $89,430. But they would have raised even less if it hadn't been for Wayne Crookes, owner/president of Vancouver-based company West Coast Title Search Ltd. Mr. Crookes, who was the Green national campaign manager during the 2004 federal election, donated $11,458 to the party - which, for those of you without calculators, works out to a whopping 13 percent of the Green's total donations. And he also handed the party a $35,000 loan which has yet to be repaid. But, interestingly, that's less than the $86,289.52 he donated and $9,100 he loaned to the party during the 2001 election. A version of this article was originally published in yesterday's edition of 24 hours.
