Liberal government lawyer caught giving a false affidavit during BC Rail trial

Tell me how this Liberal government lawyer still has a job or is even allowed to continue practising law after admitting he swore out a false affidavit during the Basi-Virk BC Rail trial:

Last year Mr. Butler filed an affidavit with court in which he stated “the Government never received copies of any statement of account or supporting information,” from the lawyers reviewing the bills from Mr. Basi and Mr. Virk.

Mr. Butler acknowledged that he also told Mr. Virk and Mr. Virk’s lawyer that he never saw any of their detailed billing records.

But in a new affidavit filed Monday he said that information was simply wrong. (see here)

This BC Liberal government is rotten to its core.

    It is truly astounding the depth of the Christy Lib cover up. Literally, you had to be there in order to get the full import of hearing the contents of Mr Butler’s affadavit referred to by the Chief Justice.

    I was in court room 32 today, and I still am shaking my head at how the Christy Liberals are trying to sweep BC Rail under the carpet. There is absolutely no shame. None.

    And where is the outrage from Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition? Not one MLA from the NDP caucus was present. There is not an excuse for their negligence of the public’s right to know. The House is not sitting; and they had over 2 months to schedule at least one NDP MLA but couldn’t be bothered.

    Oh please BC Blue! When was the last time you EVER heard of a lawyer being convicted of ANYTHING? or losing his/her license?

    How DARE YOU even imagine that lawyers and judges should be subject to the same levels of accountablility as the squalid peons of the masses! Have some respect for your intellectual and moral superiors! I demand you apologize to the legal community immediately or a judge will force you to! ;D

    Yes,where,oh where,is our diligent loyal Opposition?

    When you consider the corruption in government,with a compliant police force,and an opposition unwilling to do it’s duty, does anyone wonder why so many voters stay home on election day?
