As a friend puts it “Alex Tsakumis is amazing today.” Follow the link and judge for yourself.
Tsakumis is publishing verbatim much of the material in the BC Rail trial evidence binders. It doesn’t go well for the Premier.
What I can’t understand is how the media could declare Christy Clark “vindicated”. At best these wiretap transcripts and other pieces of first hand evidence raise serious questions about Clark’s role in cabinet and her care and feeding of the Omnitrax lobbyists.
It also casts a new light on her surprise ‘decision’ to not seek re-election in 2004. Funny how all three of the key cabinet ministers caught up in the RCMP evidence gathering process – Gary Collins, Judith Reid and Christy Clark – ‘chose’ to step aside in the 2005 election.
And I’m afraid it also casts new light on the miserable journalism that characterizes BC’s mainstream media. As recently as a year and two months ago the press gallery and the major media were declaring the premier exonerated. The record – as obtained by Tsakumis – says otherwise.
