legislature raid trial defence lawyer Kevin McCullough has provided new details on payments made by British Columbia Railway Co. to former provincial Liberal campaign co-chair Patrick Kinsella's firms between 2002 and 2005. In court today, Mr. McCullough reminded presiding British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Bennett "there is an email from 2004 to Mr. Kevin Mahoney, then vice-president of BC Rail, from another executive, asking: 'Why are we paying this guy?' and the response is that Kinsella is a 'backroom Liberal.'" This, according to The Vancouver Sun's Neal Hall.
