All the secrecy around where our British Columbia Government Ministers are to be, or where they were, is tightly kept under the FOI wrap of NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS Sec. 22, Triple-O-Delete.
There is, thankfully, a Calendar of their Events provided by the BC Liberal Party brass who are always looking for help in their fund raising projects while the Ministers are in the area, even for a day or two early, or leave a day or two later, for Victoria, or Creston, or Kamloops, or Vancouver or.....
We don't mind the fundraising bit, political parties do it, but ...... when it comes to the Titles, the Offices, the Ministers names adorned upon the BC Liberal Events that are NOT open to the general public, party members only, then what's the difference between Ministers of British Columbia and the majority of corrupted Conservative Senators of Canada?
Senator Mike Duffy was used, willingly, by his Party to fund raise for their coffers in preparation for the next election(s) while being paid from the Senate treasury supplied by taxpayers of Canada.
The Auditor General of Canada has spent million of dollars tracking down the trips that Senator Mike Duffy took for his speaking engagements on behalf of the Conservative Party of Canada, and their party faithful, while we had to pick up the tab for their double, triple, dipping activities.
Duffy set up a trip to go see his daughter delivering on the west coast and then let it be known that he would be available to fund raise while he was out here. He didn't pay for his visit to see his daughter, we did. The Conservative Party of Canada didn't pay for his trip, we did.
Is that scenario any different than Christy Clark's Ministers traipsing around the province for fund raising activities a day earlier than required to do official business on behalf of British Columbians just so they can be the top billing for the party faithful?
What came first? The need to fund raise, and oh by the way while you're in our town ..... could you cut a cake and a ribbon or two on a new PPP building?
We know about Duffy, but what of the BC Liberal Ministers?
Here's a Duffy like monumental screw up by the BC Liberal GCPE. Black Tie and Blue Jeans (no shirt) Fundraiser. It's the low slow ball pitch, below the official invite.
Dementia? a senior moment? November 2 was on Monday, not marked on the calendar, but don't worry, we'll be back on Friday:

eg. Minister of Community Peter Fassbender is leaving Metro Vancouver on Sunday to travel to Kamloops the day BEFORE his handlers want him in town on Monday. Would that be a charted private flight or WestJet public, economy, for fundraising purposes? How many flew with the minister? and what will they be doing on Sunday, schmoozing at the Hoodoos Club House?
What of Today's BC Liberals? November 2015
During the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in September, the minister made a commitment to visit the city to view and access the New Afton Mine site.
The City of Kamloops is considering stretching its boarders to include the mine which harvests gold, silver and copper.
Minister of Community Peter Fassbender will be in Kamloops Nov. 9 to discuss plans to include the New Afton mine within city limits, which will include meeting with those potentially impacted by the proposed change, including First Nations and people in the mining industry, Mayor Peter Milobar says. Fassbender will also have an opportunity to see the lay of the land. Info News - Penticton
