Earlier, we reported provincial Liberal backbencher Harry Bloy was gifted trips to China and Korea, costing an estimated $12,000. But he's not the only government member who visited the Far East on someone else's dime. According to John Yap's public disclosure statement, the Liberal caucus chair went to Beijing as part of a "delegation of business representatives to promote trade and goodwill," as well to "observe" the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics Games. That trip, which had an estimated cost of $5,000, came "courtesy" of Infospec Holdings Corp. and New Asia Capital Investments Corp.
