My viewpoint on political happenings in BC ... and odds and ends of this and that

Foster’s excuse, that he “didn’t know” about the letter, would then seem questionable would it not?
BC Liberal MLA Eric Foster; "I didn't know"
look at this a little more closely:
In the news
story ... "Auditor general cited chair of committee seeking to replace him - John Doyle raised concerns over
$78,000 renovation of Liberal MLA’s constituency office" ... Eric
Fosters says that when the issue over his Constituency Association office came
up again in October, he (Foster) said he, "... re-sent the conflict
commissioner’s letter to legislative staff."
Here's a rather interesting observation, that
perhaps BC Liberal MLA Eric Foster would like to give us clarity on:
The timeline doesn’t make sense. Why would he
resubmit his same info again in October, if he wasn’t aware of the letter that
would have been part of the AG’s recommendations?
Here's another observation, and MLA Foster is
welcome to correct me if I am wrong in my thinking on this:
I would think that when attending committee meetings, the attending members would NOT see material
simply dumped in their laps when they arrive. Would it not be safe to
believe that any material, to be discussed, would always be sent out
beforehand. That way, committee members
would have the time to give the material they are discussing, careful and
They WOULD want to look it over beforehand, and come
prepared ... wouldn't they??
Foster’s excuse, that he “didn’t know” about the letter, would
then seem to be questionable.
Shouldn't his office have received the material beforehand?
I sure hope that in the interest of good decisions being
made by our elected officials, there is indeed consideration of important
information to be decided on, ahead of meetings where those decisions are being
All of that then, calls in to question what BC Liberal MLA
Eric Foster did know ... and when.
