Weekly Wrap Up - June 4, 2011

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* the Clark administration's $5 million harmonized sales tax "information campaign" won't include any advertisements promoting the positives of returning to a provincial sales tax, even though it now features a commercial touting the HST's benefits;

* the subsidiary of a company that specializes in developing light rail was assigned to manage a government project that ultimately recommended light right as the best option to connect British Columbia's capital city to its biggest bedroom community;

* the Vancouver Canucks, its present owner Francesco Acquilini and his companies have contributed $618,705 to the BC Liberal Party and its candidates between 2005 and 2010; and

* the provincial Liberals' election readiness co-chair Rich Coleman has been speaking with caucus members about whether they will be seeking another term in office.
