BC FOI requests from July 1, 2011 to January 1, 2012, but nary a one asking for monies spent by Christy Clark on her Trade Mission that required Interpreters and Translators being supplied FROM China, India and Japan!

A list of all general FOI requests sent to the central government from July 1, 2011 to January 1, 2012.



One Hundred and Fourteen Pages long with 21 FOIs per page.... which makes it  Two Thousand Three Hundred and Ninety-Four FOIs long!

And, if you enter "Description" as a search criteria in the PDF document, you'll end up going from page to page without having to click on the Down key.   Other words to search for, highlighted in bold printing are Premier (Boring) Christy not so boring but you do get to see Dave Basi and Bobby Virk, Indemnity, GCPE, Asian Trade Mission, China, spreadsheet, Campaign Research, NRG Research, Barinder Sall, November 04, 2011, November 16, 2011, Pamela Martin, twelve telephone town hall, Harry Bloy, SLAPP, September 23, 2011, Athana, GCPE staff, rural lens, BC Autism, Lyme disease, Parliamentary Secretary, Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff, Falcon, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich, Huckleberry Mine, Art Gallery, HST fight, cleaning/washing/mending, .... this last one may seem kind of petty, flaky, but those are the EXACT words that were used to search for in the Premier's Mission Report to China and India and Japan.

Premier Christy Clark was gone for fourteen days on a Trade Mission, with brand spanking new clothing, so too for her Ministers, and someone turns around and is trying to find out via an FOI if they spent any money on Mending of clothing..... MENDING?!

What the public and the media, should be asking themselves is why.... WHY Premier Christy Clark had to hire interpreters and translators IN China, to interpret and translate what the Chinese government officials were saying to her, and her BC Government entourage as they settled down to signing $1.3 Billion in Trade deals.

Not one of Christy Clark staff,  had a clue as to what was really being said to her, or them.

Here, just sign here, okay, okay.  We want Wood, LNG, Uranium.......

What Christy did to be able to "understand" what the Chinese officials were saying, was to hire someone from China, for $14,107 for interpreters and Translators, for eleven days, from November 5th to November 17, 2011.

The Lucky Lady, Christy Clark is soon to be off to her second Trade Mission, 2012, along with her even luckier  GCPE staff without a one of them speaking a second language from Asia!
