April 1, former B.C. Finance Minister gets a new job

.
On 1 April 2007, Gary Collins the former B.C. Finance Minister will join Belkin Industries as their Senior Vice President.

Gary is "very excited about this opportunity" to work with "a very dynamic group of companies headquartered here in Vancouver with interests in fields as diverse as Rogers Sugar, CHIP REIT, environmental services, Merchant Banking and Investment Services, as well as holdings in Commercial and Residential Real Estate".

Collins, who has been described as B.C.'s worst Finance Minister, is best remembered for having chosen a Ministerial Aide who was later charged with bribery in the B.C. Rail Case.

I thought I heard (or read) that his Ministerial Aide (Basi) was hand picked by Martyn Brown and Gordo the Soup Nazi!
 
Not so, Koot. Dave Basi was the only Ministerial Aide who was NOT picked by Martyn Brown. Basi and Collins had been friends from way back.
