The British Connection

Earlier, we reported Finance Minister Carole Taylor talked about British Columbia's public-private partnership opportunities at invite-only forum organized by Euromoney and Project Finance Magazine. But she wasn't the only one addressing the conference. James Stewart, the chief executive officer of Partnerships UK - the government agency responsible for promoting public-private projects in Britain - was also scheduled to give his two cents. And the province's public affairs bureau wanted to make sure Minister Taylor was aware of his presence. Her speaking notes include a reminder to acknowledge Mr. Stewart's presence because Partnerships UK "helped (Partnerships British Columbia) a lot." Hmmm...it seems the Blair administration has been providing a lot of inspiration for the Campbell government.
