RossK over at the Gazetteer has a good story about Graham Whitmarsh’s role in signing off on the $6 million indemnity that sealed the deal on the BC Rail trial.
The deal, of course, meant we wouldn’t get to hear from the next scheduled witness, former finance minister Gary Collins.
How convenient then, Mr. Whitmarsh’s relationship with Collins? Convenient or troubling?
From Public Eye:
“Subsequent to Mr. Whitmarsh’s appointment to the Head of the Climate Action Secretariat it was further revealed by the media that Mr. Whitmarsh had previously worked in the sporting and military sectors, as well as most recently working with former finance minister Gary Collins at Harmony Airways”.
