NEWS RELEASE · 3rd May 2013
BC Conservative Party
The BC Conservatives issued a a statement today, demanding the Christy Clark Liberal government release details of their investigation into allegations miners coming to British Columbia are paying recruiters in China up to $12,500 for their positions. The Clark Liberal government did not release details of its investigation, even after receiving a Freedom of Information Act request.
"It is totally unacceptable for the government to withhold information from the public, especially on important issues like this, where jobs are allegedly being taken away from British Columbians and sold to the highest bidder," said John Cummins, Leader of the BC Conservatives. "We are demanding that the Christy Clark Liberal government release information about their investigation. British Columbians deserve to know what they are hiding."
Allegations that foreign miners are paying recruiters in China up to $12,500 to secure their jobs and positions in British Columbia sparked an investigation by the government.
However, after Freedom of Information Act requests to release details about the investigation revealed that it appeared the government did not do a thorough investigation, nor even talk to anyone overseas, their claim that the miners did not pay fees simply lacks credibility.

All you would get from the BC Liberals on this topic would be deflection, spin and a shifting of focus!
The BC Liberals have bankrupted our beautiful province. And this is exactly what you get when they can't meet their loan obligations - the sell out!
