Last month, the provincial New Democrats had to dig through the legislative library to find out British Columbia Railway Co. paid $297,000 to former provincial Liberal campaign co-chair Patrick Kinsella's firms between 2002 and 2005. But they shouldn't have needed to. The reason: according to an agreement signed by the provincial government and British Columbia Railway on February 13, 2007, the Crown corporation committed to display the financial information statements containing that information "in an easily accessible location on its website." But no such information exists on its Website.
