AG still in the dark

VICTORIA - 2 years after a pair of former BC ministerial aides pleaded guilty to leaking government secrets, the province's auditor general says he's still in the dark about a controversial $6M legal payout in the BC Rail saga.  (CP)   MORE:   BC concedes it has detailed bills    

Policy wouldn't stop payments

VICTORIA - The BC government will go after legal costs incurred by government workers found guilty in court, but that doesn't mean taxpayers are completely off the hook for costs such as the $6M paid to convicted former BC government aides David Basi and Bobby Virk.  (CTV)

Payments raising questions

VICTORIA - Sure, a lot was happening in the Liberals' first term. But it's hard to see why a Crown corporation had to pay $297,000 to a Liberal insider for help understanding the new government.  (Times Colonist)

Lavish pay baffling

VICTORIA - The salaries that BC Rail pays its senior bosses continue to astound.  Yesterday's column discussed the $570,000 shelled out to president Kevin Mahoney last year, to run a railway that's a piddling 39 kilometres long. The short line from Roberts Bank to Surrey is all that's left under BC Rail's direct control following the sale-lease of the main line to CN in 2004.  (Victoria Times Colonist)
