Weekly Wrap Up - February 26, 2010

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* Pivot Legal Society has been, in effect, barred from doing advocacy work with the money it's receiving from the Law Foundation of BC, according to the high-profile poverty law group's executive director;

* the Vancouver Police Department started work on a usage policy for its new Long-Range Acoustic Device only after controversy emerged surrounding its purchase;

* the provincial government is now paying its employees with "pop, chips, candy and Red Bull;"

* the ministry of children and family development's so-called yellow brick road document; and

* groups delivering social services for aboriginals on southern Vancouver Island will be getting a greater share of the ministry of children and family development funding pie in the coming fiscal year.
