Meet British Columbia’s best friend in government – Auditor General John Doyle
B.C.’s auditor general is going to the province’s Supreme Court to get information about defence costs related to the Basi Virk corruption trial.
John Doyle filed a petition Tuesday seeking an order for access to records and information, arguing that the information is essential to an audit due at the end of June.
Auditor John Doyle is an exceptionally busy man, and an exceptional man. I have written to him with my concerns on P3’s and how they are accounted for, and what impact that nefarious accounting will have on provincial budgets- as well as the long term impact on the provinces true debt load. Other progressives have made similar contacts with their concerns on BC Hydro and Ipp’s. Each time, he has replied personally, with thoughtful and insightful comments and at times, at length. I believe he is absolutely committed to doing his job the best he can, and this action supports that.
Will this be the avenue that finally reveals all? Watch this story as it develops and how our unelected premier deals with the questions that this development will undoubtedly resurrect.
