In July, the provincial government announced it had asked comptroller general Cheryl Wenezenki-Yolland to review TransLink and British Columbia Ferry Services Inc.'s operations. The purpose: to ensure British Columbians are "receiving maximum value for services." According to that announcement, those reviews were scheduled to be completed by September 30. But that date has come and gone. So what's the status of that review? Well, in a scrum yesterday, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Shirley Bond told reporters Ms. Wenezenki-Yolland has "briefed our staff in terms of some of those findings." But she hasn't personally received the comptroller general's yet-to-be finalized reviews. Although Minister Bond stated she expects to receive them "sometime this week."
