Imagine,considering all the investigative work I have done on various local road and bridge projects – much of it ongoing – how not surprised I was to see this headline in my favourite Wall Street Journal blog this morning :
No!! Say it ain’t so…. hey! Wait…. isn’t Christy Clark’s advisor, Gwyn Morgan, a chairman for SNC-Lavelin ?
Why, yes he is! And isn’t that a still a very real conflict of interest considering how much business SNC has done, and continues to do with the BC government?
Of course, but hey,that’s nothing when you try to wrap your head around why a woman who repeatedly claims she puts families first welcomes an advisor from a company who happily does business in Libya with nutters like Gadhafi and his son, Saif al-Islam ? In a country, I might point out in case you don’t follow such things, that the Canadian government has been involved in military action( including air strikes and bombing) for some time.
Twisted , I know… but I’ll tell you something about myself. I could never do business with anyone involved in a corporation that has no issues with doing business with madmen, and making a tidy profit off it as well.
But Christy can, and to me, that speaks volumes about her real values.
