The premier spoke and nobody heard

Yesterday, Attorney General Wally Oppal and Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Kevin Falcon refused to say what services 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. Nor did Premier Gordon Campbell answer questions posed to him in the legislature about those payments. Nevertheless, when scrummed by reporters today, Premier Campbell said he had responded to those inquiries. But, if that's the case, we're unaware in which venue that occurred. The following is a recording of that scrum.

It's a great day for openness and accountability. Looks like there is something to hide.

This seem to be a not uncommon problem for both the Premier and Hansen. They claim they have said or done something that never occurred.

What a disgrace. His chief political advisor's business with govt is under questioning and the Premier ignores the issue by sloughing off some ridiculously embarrassing nonsense about "already" having answered--when in fact, he did not answer. He has provided NO SUBSTANTIVE ANSWERS about Patrick, as an alleged lobbyist, ever!!! Nor about Mark either. The Premier makes himself, and his friends look utterly guilty when he acts like such a rube.

Shameful, doesn't even begin to cover this Premier's conduct where friends and insiders are concerned.

Shame!
