BC Liberal operative Brian Bonney left Provincial Court Jan. 31 with a nine-month conditional sentence, after pleading guilty last October to breach of public trust.
Bonney was a key member of the team involved in the party’s multicultural outreach strategy before the 2013 election. But, as court heard, he was not the ringleader of what came to be known as Quick Wins. Bonney’s guilty plea scuttled a trial, which would have lasted until Feb. 22.
Former cabinet ministers John Yap and Harry Bloy did not cooperate with the RCMP investigation.
This is what happened when Bob Mackin sought Bonney’s comment.
