Hardly the legal fare that will set the courthouse a blaze, but let me assure you, without giving away how this will all unfold, the announcement last Friday by Pat Bell and Shirley Bond, that PCL Construction is the builder, will do nothing to heal this festering, expanding sore–it doesn’t even change the dressing.

This government is in real trouble over the WDIC scandal, and the allegations against Christy Clark, Pat Bell and Shirley Bond are very serious. They include: Bond pushing an independent financing authority, Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT), into financing the Commonwealth Campus group when they were in the process of clearing and remediating the land; Bell bid-rigging the process to secure a shortlisting of the BID Group, and both Bell and Bond making promises to private investors and land speculators related to monies available by Treasury Board, of which Bond is Vice-Chair.
