Weekly Wrap Up - August 13, 2010

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* an RCMP team targeting illegal gambling in British Columbia wrote a report more than a year ago warning that organized crime figures were likely involved in those activities;

* the same report also advised Hells Angels had, in some cases, succeeded in infiltrating the province's "legitimate gaming operations;"

* British Columbia Ferry Services Inc. president and chief executive officer David Hahn and three of his four executive vice-presidents made even more money in 2009/10 than they did in the previous fiscal year;

* the Vancouver Police Department deletes its members email accounts when they retire - a policy now being criticized by civil liberty and freedom of information advocates;

* one of BC Hydro Corp. newest board members described public-private partnerships as "the death knell of Regional Contractors" just six months ago;

* Health Minister Kevin Falcon attended and even apparently sponsored a hole at the Teamsters Joint Council No. 36 Charity Golf Tournament; and

* Mark Marissen has been contracted to do field work for the federal Liberals in British Columbia as the party prepares for the next election
