Weekly Wrap Up - March 11, 2011

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* the only environmental group focused on protecting the province's threatened grasslands is itself being threatened by government cutbacks;

* health services assistant deputy minister John Bethel, a former federal Liberal candidate, is a member of premier-designate Christy Clark's transition team;

* a 2001 email in which Patrick Kinsella outlined the services his firm could offer British Columbia Railway Co.;

* by one measure, treaty negotiations with British Columbia's First Nations appear to have stalled; and

* there is an organized effort to draft federal parliamentarian John Cummins to run for the provincial Conservative leadership. The effort has included raising money and securing potential financial backers for such an eventuality.
