It was wrong for Bill Vander Zalm to use his public office as Premier for financial gain, what about Christy Clark's flights + time paid by us

In regards to Premier Christy Clark and her fellow Ministers using taxpayers funds to fly them all over the province for speaking engagements to the party faithful, and others who are willing to pay thousands of dollars to bend her, and the Ministers ears, at by invitation only dinner and luncheon tables, for the purpose of building up their war chest for the 2017 Provincial Election, isn't that a breach of trust.....something like what happened with the Social Credit Party?

THAT, in or about the months of MARCH, 1990 THROUGH October, 1990, at or near the Cities of Victoria, Vancouver, and the Municipality of Richmond and elsewhere in the Province of British Columbia, being the Premier of the Province of British Columbia, did unlawfully commit a breach of trust in connection with the duties of his office by using his public office to assist or promote his personal and financial interest in the sale of the property known as Fantasy Gardens ...

As to the first element, there is no doubt that Vander Zalm held public office as premier and his oath of office filed as an exhibit is documentary proof of that fact. While there is little, if any, direct evidence of his duties in connection with his office, I have no difficulty in recognizing that the office of premier of a province entails a duty and responsibility to the citizens of that province to use that office to further the interests of the public at large to the exclusion of, as Crown counsel puts it, the influence of concealed, pecuniary self-interest. 




Premier Christy Clark:
THAT, in or about the months of MARCH, 2016 THROUGH May 2017, at or near the Cities of Victoria, Vancouver, and the Municipality of Richmond and elsewhere in the Province of British Columbia, being the Premier of the Province of British Columbia, did unlawfully commit a breach of trust in connection with the duties of her office by using her public office to assist or promote her personal and financial interest of Today's BC Liberals
