In the legislature today, provincial New Democrats demanded to know what work British Columbia Railway Co. was paying for when it transferred $297,567 between 2002 and 2005 to former provincial Liberal co-chair Patrick Kinsella's companies. Attorney General Wally Oppal refused to answer those questions because he seemed to believe records of those payments were part of legislature raid trial documents. But the figures were obtained from the company's financial statements, filed in the legislative library. And, in an interview with Public Eye, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Kevin Falcon also declined to comment. The following is a recording of that interview.
