Weekly Wrap Up - October 29, 2010

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* Children and Family Development Minister Mary Polak has said her government is "open" to introducing separate child protection legislation for aboriginal peoples that will be developed in collaboration with them;

* Spencer Chandra Herbert, the liaison between the British Columbia New Democratic Party and the opposition caucus, has said he only found out president Moe Sihota was being paid a stipend in October;

* United Steelworkers District Three director Steve Hunt said none of the donations his union has made to the New Democrats were earmarked to pay for Mr. Sihota's stipend; and

* only a single page of material was prepared by the public service agency in determining the government's post-employment guidelines wouldn't conflict with its oil and gas division head leaving to work for a major petroleum interest.
