For the week of June 5, 2022:
In the second part of an exclusive interview, former B.C. Legislature Speaker Darryl Plecas and his chief of staff Alan Mullen reflect on the challenge of exposing corruption and seeking justice.
Eventually, police and prosecutors took on the case and a judge found ex-Clerk Craig James guilty of fraud and breach of public trust. But it wasn’t easy, because of BC Liberal opposition politicians and press gallery naysayers who took James’s side.
Plecas said he was only doing his job and not seeking any accolades. One thing does surprise him.
“Not one of those people at the Legislature, not one, not one elected official has come forward and said, you know, thank you for doing what you did. Not even close. Well, you know, some people would say, okay, I might not have agreed with everything you did or how you did it. But that never would have happened, unless Alan and I did what we did.”
Hear more of the exclusive interview with Plecas and Mullen. Plus, a special edition of the Virtual Nanaimo bar, recognizing a British Columbian activist for human rights in Hong Kong and Mainland China.
Also, a commentary on the end of the spring session of the Legislature, and headlines from the Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest.
