Weekly Wrap Up - August 5, 2011

This week, Public Eye exclusively revealed:

* the newly appointed, Liberal-connected chair of the province's taxi licenser is alleged by the Law Society of British Columbia to have falsified documents while attempting to obtain a mortgage for a property he was purchasing in Prince George. The chair, Nathan Bauder, declined to comment on those unproven allegations. But he has resigned that position;

* the office running the government's pro-harmonized sales tax campaign secretly awarded around $46,000 of work to a company owned by Finance Minister Kevin Falcon's deputy leadership campaign manager; and

* the provincial government is reviewing a recent hike in the minimum wages paid to British Columbia's farm workers.
