Weekly Wrap Up - September 24, 2010

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* a prominent provincial government initiative to find cost-savings at Lower Mainland health authorities has been troubled by significant problems. But Accenture Inc., the company commissioned to monitor that initiative, has come up with a partial solution: more outsourcing;

* a union-commissioned poll shows provincial Conservative support has surged into double digit territory;

* the West Coast Environmental Law Society is concerned the government isn't consulting with First Nations, municipalities and landowners as it drafts a document that will help ensure oil and gas sites are properly cleaned up after a well is permanently plugged; and

* British Columbia's proposed northwest transmission line may mean more economic development in Alaska. But a Washington State-based environmental group is worried about the environmental cost of that development.
