Here's a red letter date for Tri-City provincial Liberals. On March 17, Burquitlam legislator Harry Bloy will be hosting his sixth annual wine and roses fundraiser, with tickets priced at $85 and sponsorship opportunities ranging from $1,500 to $2,500. This, according to a letter and order form authored by Mr. Bloy's constituency assistant Dave Teixeira. All of which isn't particularly surprising. But wait a minute. According to the document propreties for that file, Mr. Teixeira created the promotional material at 10:49 in the morning on January 25 - a Thursday for those who are checking their calendars. So does that mean he was doing partisan work on constituency office time? In an interview, Mr. Teixeria allayed our concerns. "I can't remember the time I did that. But it certainly wouldn't have been done on the company time, if you will." So that's that. The following is a portion of the aforementioned material.

Of course we will have roses for all the guests!
