No rules against big donating lawyers from getting Liberal paying gigs

My conflict of interest complaint against Christy Clark appointee Geoffrey Cowper filed with the BC Law Society (see here) went nowhere fast as explained in the letter received:

    So potentially being having a conflict of interest with the taxpayers is oakily-doakily! Just one more reason to NOT vote for the BC Liberals. Won’t ever vote NDP, so this narrows the voting choices down again.

    As much as I agree with the spirit of your intent, I don’t think that was a conflict of interest. However, it was certainly patronage or pork barrelling, but not conflict of interest. Appalling either way though.

    Yep…. Pretty good investment for him.

    What a bunch of crap. This stinks like the BCUC ruling on smart meters and BC Hydro. A bunch more crap. Was your complaint not for patronage appointment in the first place?

    • BC Blue Says:

      My complaint was mainly based on Cowper’s $10K donation to Christy Clark’s leadership campaign and how his chairing this review is potentially tainted from that donation.

    What a load of crap… Cowper can contribute ten thousand dollars to the Liberals and basically buy his appointment, but the BC law society sees nothing wrong with this. And of course Liberals see nothing wrong with this either. Shameful.
    At least you raised your voice…

    • BC Blue Says:

      Ya, thanks I tried…at least we know of the lack of rule ‘loop hole’ and the Liberals as well as Cowper are now fully aware of my complaint.

    Part of the world’s problem is way too many lawyers in our governments.
