Trial postponed again ... to December 2006
Bill Berardino, the special prosecutor for this case, needs more time, he says, to review "massive amounts of information." Massive amounts of information, he says, are still waiting to be studied. After 2-1/2 years. Unbelievable.
The judge has recommended the delay. But they all meet again on June 13 in Vancouver.
Meantime, back at the Legislature, the B.C. Liberal government is rushing through two shocking pieces of legislation.
Bill 23 is designed to maintain complete secrecy over the findings of any Public Enquiry.
Bill 30 is designed to maintain complete secrecy over agreements made between government and corporations.
These are head-spinning events. Time to get active.
