Two important media events - Bill's is postponed to July 3 at 9:30

This web-site was established over 2 years ago for the purpose of informing citizens about the impending trial of Basi, Virk and Basi, because the mainstream media had gone virtually silent.

This is Posting #700 on The Legislature Raids ... and the following two announcements are telling us only that there will be two significant interviews coming up this week on the ... um, er ... the impending trial of Basi, Virk and Basi. The people of B.C. are still waiting for "justice to be seen to be done".

1) Bill Tieleman and Mark Hume (The Globe and Mail) will be on the Bill Good Show, CKNW AM 980 on Wednesday July 2nd from 9:00 to 10:00 AM, discussing the case of David Basi, Bob Virk and Aneal Basi. (Radio)

Bill says: tune in for the latest in political corruption charges related to the $1 billion privatization of BC Rail and the raid on the BC Legislature in December 2003.

Later, Bill advised: Sorry folks - CKNW had to postpone the segment until 9:30 a.m. Thursday July 3 due to breaking news today.

2) On Voice of BC this week, Vaughn Palmer's guest will be Leonard Krog, Opposition Critic for the Attorney-General, on the topic of Basi, Virk, and Basi.

Shaw TV Network, Thursday July 3, at 8:00 PM, with repeats on the weekend.

[See comments for one suggestion about getting this on YouTube (a great idea) ... another good suggestion is that Krog might be the person to ask about getting TV cameras activated in the courtroom for Basi, Virk, Basi / BC Rail.]

Is anyone else thinking that these two unusual media events might be caused by jungle drums forecasting the start of that significant trial? - BC Mary.


Good background reading:

Bill 89: The British Columbia Railway (Revitalization) Amendment Act.

- Hansard debates - Thursday, Novembr 27, 2003.

It looks likw the Tieleman/Hume interview got pulled in favor of talk about bridge jumpers causing traffic jams, Monty Python movies, the carbon tax and grief counselling. After listen to this pointless babble waiting for Bill and Mark to come on, I want those two hours of my life back.
Sorry folks - CKNW had to postpone the segment until 9:30 a.m. Thursday July 3 due to breaking news today.
Breaking news? They spent the 9 am to 10 am time slot about a Canada Day traffic jam caused by a distraught person threatening to jump of a bridge and the promotional blurb for the musical spamalot. Breaking news? Give me a break.
I'm with you, anonymous . . .

TOTALLY transparent - totally obvious damage control when the word must have come down to kill the BC Rail/Raid on the Leg segment - totally p-a-t-h-e-t-i-c.

CKNW & Goode are totally in bed with the Campbell crew & have been for a long time on any issues that threaten their hold on power. The sanitizing team come out in full force.

Now let's see what happens with Voice of BC and the footnote given to the issue on Monday's CKNW segment with Bill T - don't hold your breath . . . why bother?

Sorry Bill, but you should not swallow this junk.
It looks like the "breaking news" was the announcement of the trial of Duncan and Young, which is very big news. This trial will involve the agriculture ministry, then run by current soliciter general John Van Dongen,and the environnment ministry, then run by current federal MP Joyce Murray. It could be spectacular, especially if it ends up involving former lpcbc president Jamie Elmhirst.
Van Dongen's father had some trouble recently with his (agricuture)property. It seems to be that with John Van Dongen at the sol/gen helm, that the campbell/coleman administration can stand at ease for awhile. Until the next time, they 'have to' stand on guard, for themselves!
Wasn't John Van Dongens father charged with abuse to horses, he had on his farm?
Well, Anons, it was John Van Dongen's UNCLE and you can read ALL about it
