Earlier, we reported some environmental groups were offered provincial-government purchased 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games tickets. But which groups actually used them? Well, here's the list - according to a Public Eye review of the government's 216-page report on integrated hosting and ticketing.
* Climate Project Canada outreach manager Andrea Foster (Vancouver Victory Ceremony featuring rock band Theory of a Deadman, $100)
Ms. Foster did not respond to a request for comment.
* David Suzuki Foundation senior marketing coordinator Ducan Owen, aquatic biologist Jeffery Young and team lead Jason Curran (Vancouver Victory Ceremony featuring Theory of a Deadman, $300)
Minister of State for Climate Action John Yap offered the tickets to a member of one of the foundation's partner organizations after he was forced to cancel a meeting with her. The partner organization wasn't able to use those tickets so they were passed along to the foundation, according to David Suzuki spokesperson Ian Hanington.
* ForestEthics climate director Merran Smith (Vancouver Victory Ceremony featuring country music singer Paul Brandt, $100)
Ms. Smith did not respond to a request for comment.
* Organizing for Change provincial lead Lisa Matthaus (Vancouver Victory Ceremony featuring Mr. Brandt, $100)
Ms. Matthaus told Public Eye she "got a call on the morning of the event that the minister was hosting a box at the stadium for the award's ceremony that evening. I had been trying to get a meeting with the minister for several weeks at that point and had been unable to - largely, apparently, due to the Olympic schedules. So I thought, 'I will take advantage of this because the environment needs every chance it can get.'"
