Welcome to BC provincial Liberal politics where everyone is related to each other and the rot is right throughout.
Tell me that Conflict Commissioner Paul Fraser isn’t in a clear conflict of interest himself in that if he finds Christy Clark guilty on the BC Rail conflict, his son’s job is at jeopardy.
B.C.’s Conflict Commissioner Paul Fraser says he sees no problem investigating an allegation against Premier Christy Clark, even though his son is a longtime friend of Clark’s and works as a senior official within her government.
“I don’t perceive a problem in making a decision in this case that will have nothing to do with my son’s career,” Fraser said Thursday in response to a question on the issue by The Vancouver Sun.
Fraser did acknowledge “there will be people who will connect the dots in their own way,” but said he is confident there is no personal conflict. (see here)

At least now I know why he denied my complaint against Clark (see here)
Also: This week it was exposed that the Jobs Minister tipped-off a Liberal insider and that a hospital’s ‘citizen consultation’ was a pure set-up by another Liberal operative (see here)
