Back in 2006, Monday Magazine's Russ Francis reported between 2002 and 2004, the Great Century Fund gave the provincial Liberals $24,750 in prohibited donations. At the time, party communications Chad Pederson said the party was unable to discover any information about the fund, which does not appear in the Canada Revenue Agency's list of charities. But the party "refunded it out of an abundance of caution." Nevertheless, that doesn't seem to have deterred the fund from making another prohibited donation - this time for the amount of $7,500 - to the Liberals in 2007, according to Elections British Columbia. Persistent aren't they?
