Weekly Wrap Up - September 17, 2010

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* the provincial government determined its post-employment restrictions didn't conflict with the former head of its oil and gas division joining EOG Resources Inc.'s Canadian subsidiary, which is developing natural gas reserves in northeastern British Columbia;

* the provincial government has been giving inadequate advice to companies assessing the environmental damage caused by permanently plugged oil and gas wells in northeastern British Columbia;

* the British Columbia Lottery Corp. is considering making changes to a controversial program that rewards casino goers when they gamble;

* the government gave Robin Junger, who is now the province's energy, mines and petroleum resources deputy minister, more vacation time than his seniority level would usually allow; and

* Premier Gordon Campbell appears to be making a habit out of attending provincial Liberal biennial convention delegate selection meetings.
