Earlier, we reported Burquitlam provincial Liberal backbencher Harry Bloy had scheduled his sixth annual wine and roses fundraiser for March 17 - featuring special guest Finance Minister Carole Taylor. But it's going to be held at a new location - Brian Jessel's BMW showroom. Which seems somewhat appropriate. After all, last year Minister Taylor announced the surtax on passenger vehicles priced over $49,000 would now only apply to cars and trucks valued at more than $55,000 - which has made it more affordable to purchase luxury models like the BMW 3 Series, the X3 and the Z4.
