Last night, provincial New Democrat legislator Gregor Robertson flew across the Georgia Strait to attend an event in support of his bid to become Vision Vancouver's mayoral candidate. But taxpayers didn't pick up the tab for that flight, says Mr. Robertson. "I'm paying for my own travel. My campaign will cover travel costs when it's specifically for" the nomination bid - as was the case on Tuesday. Mr. Robertson went onto add he "made the dash" for Vancouver "right when the house adjoured" at 6:30 "and caught the last flight back. So I didn't get to my event till 7:30 or so. It was a bit of a scramble. But I'm committed to representing Vancouver-Fairview here in the house and maintaining my solid attendance record."
