Dave Basi’s “Memos to file”
I have covered the BC Rail mess here at length. Yesterday Alex G Tsakumis started releasing – one a day – the notes that Dave Basi kept as “memos to file” in the period from October 6, 2003 to November 25, 2003.
Basi states that he was instructed to keep the other bidders in the process once it became clear that CN had an inside track. Tsakumis points the finger at Christy Clark and states that she is “unfit to hold public office”.
Tsakumis also berates the press for giving the BC Liberals an easy ride, and not calling for a public enquiry.
On the same topic but a different source, the Globe and Mail is reporting that Basi and Virk were, allegedly, paid long before the BC Rail deal by Erik Bornman, a director of Pilothouse Public Affairs.
I would have posted that last night but the Globe web site was messed up at that time
