Today, still relating to the BC Rail Political Corruption Trial, Dave Basi will stand in BC Supreme Court once again - this time, alone
for further negotiations(?) on the terms of his two year sentence of house arrest.
It may be safe to say that Basi will be accompanied by his lawyer, Michael Bolton who, rumour has it, is a good friend of this trial's Very Special Crown Prosecutor in off-hours. It's not known yet if he -- Bill Berardino -- will attend today. [Update: Bill Berardino was absent from the Courtroom.]
- BC Mary.
'Railgate' results in slap on the wrist

A litany of C words come to mind when listening to Premier Campbell on CBC regarding the BC Rail fiasco.
Confusion, collusion, conflict of interest, corruption, criminal... we will never know because the biggest C of all, Campbell, has declared, after six years and millions of taxpayer's dollars, RailGate is a done deal.
No inquiry and no truths to come out, it is over. A mere twenty minutes before truths were revealed in a court of law, it is over. Our government has made it crystal clear that we will never know the details of this sordid mess.
Rather than man up, our leader chose to take the low road. With Mike De Jong and Premier Campbell reading from the same Liberal spin doctor manual, they declared that this has gone on long enough. We won't spend one more dime of the taxpayers money! (Spin: They are doing the taxpayers a favour)
Riddle me this?
It's all right to take the taxpayers money to pay the legal fees for these two criminals (even though the law says otherwise), but it is not all right to use taxpayers money to find out the truth. Wow! ...

the Big Media have the money for such an injunction, just no guts - or morals.
