Back in August 2005, we reported Mark Jiles, Premier Gordon Campbell's constituency campaign manager, was considering partnering up with Patrick Kinsella, arguably the most powerful Liberal backroom boy in the province. At the time, Mr. Jiles told Public Eye the two of them were considering how best to pursue 2010 Winter Olympic business prospects together. And it looks like that partnership has come to pass. Mr. Jiles is scheduled to speak at Washington State's 2007 Trade Week International Export Symposium about Olympic opportunities in his capacity as vice-president of The Progressive Group - Mr. Kinsella's company. His presentation is part of a lunch program sponsored by the Canadian consulate.
