This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:
* illegal gaming on First Nations reserves "continues unabated and is highly visible," according to a 2008 internal government report obtained by Public Eye via a freedom of information request
* why Children and Family Development Minister Mary Polak supports her deputy's claim to having "never refused" to meet with the government's independent child protection watchdog. This, despite the fact the deputy recently rebuffed the watchdog's request for a briefing;
* the ministry of forests and range only has a rough, six-year-old estimate of what it would cost to clear or thin all of the wooded areas in British Columbia that, if left alone, could increase the chances or severity of a wildfire;
* the provincial New Democrats still have "$2 million in debt from the election" - although the party already "managed to pay off over $500,000" of that bill; and
* the Industry Training Authority "ambiguous" service plans goals.
