Gwyn Morgan chaired Christy Clark’s transition team. He helped set up this mess of a government.
Morgan is also chairman of the board of SNC Lavalin. In today’s Province a Financial Post story predicts SNC Lavalin will soon be facing criminal charges for corruption.
Knock me over with a feather.
SNC Lavalin recently won the provincial bid to build the Evergreen line. Knock me over again.
And Bob Mackin has an interesting story in Business in Vancouver about the selection process. According to Mackin a heavily blacked out FOI reveals that the project board considered the “corruption” problem back in June. But Mackin writes that “the minutes do not show what, if any, action the board took to protect taxpayer interests.”
Probably the same action the BC Liberals took with the Auditor: shoot the messenger.
Update: The Vancouver Sun must have read my mind and rushed out and obtained an editorial from Mr. Morgan this AM. And by “from Mr. Morgan” I mean written by one of his menials.
Anyhow, Mr. Morgan is on about his wish that our government run on private sector principles. You know; kickbacks, bribes and fraud like the company he runs, SNC Lavalin. But they do, don’t they?
