"We need Dave Basi to be like Julian Assange ... " springs to mind, after reading the "Completed" listings for the BC Rail Political Corruption Trial
Skookum1 has left a new comment on your post "BC needs its own Julian Assange. Now!" ...
Hey Anonymous, 8:19, nice try but boring as all you only-talk-about Basi folks usually are; reminds me of the La Femme Nikita TV series where all the trainees are trying to take down a graduate of the same school of skuldiggery.
But you know what? We need Dave Basi to be like Julian Assange, to release all he knows, and all he knows about who's been dancing with who, and any notes on everything he has on all the "political" actions he was called upon to do by his various superiors and Lords Master. We need BasiLeaks....then it would be valid to compare Assange to Basi; but not before.
Dave, are you listening?
BC Mary comment: Thanks to all, for your patience the past week when my blog went down and stayed down during some technical difficulties -- partly caused by the bothersome blindness (about 85%) in my left eye. I especially ask your patience in squeezing the meaning out of the following brain-teasers from BC Supreme Court:
Although these two significant pages (Pages 5 & 6) are identified only as "Limited Access", I asked the Search Box to find Case Number 23299 for the trial of Basi, Virk, Basi, and this is what I found. It's a pdf file so please bear with me as I copy it onto this page. The interesting factors are:
* Case #23299 (Basi, Virk, Basi) counts now number 28,
* Various releases are assigned like a lot of happy days ahead for famous people,
* with "any such further & other relief as this court may deem just" ... which makes me think Skookum1 got it right (above). There's still too much secrecy surrounding the way (oh, let us count the ways) in which BC Rail slipped out of public ownership and into private pockets.
Here, as best I can duplicate them, are BC Supreme Court's Dec. 13, 2010 codes and listings:
Count 27 - 001 Vacate all remaining sealing order and publication bans
Count 27 - 002 Release Roger McConchie from Undertakings - Agency file 40: 03-1072 (same number for each of the 4 rulings)
Count 27 - 003 Release designated client representatives of the Applicants' counsel from signed confidentiality agreements;
Count 27 - 004 Any such further and other relief as this court may deem just.
BC Mary: I recommend that readers click on the easy access link (BC Courts Criminal) in the left margin of this page, as the BCSC information presented is significant, and deserves your close scrutiny. I'm hoping CBC will invite Dave & Bobby to a full-length interview someday soon, on Power & Politics or the "At Issue" segment of The National News.
The CBC have done f-all with this case for nigh on seven years now; why expect them to smarten up? - and they're usually boobs from beyond the mountains with no political depth in BC (and often screwed-up geographic knowledge too). I'll never forget Kevin whatsisname, now a BC regular, upon being freshly transplanted to BC on the even of the '91 election, forecasting a Social Credit majority because he couldn't see an incumbent government of nearly 30 years of continuous rule being turfed....he was in shock for the rest of the evening, needless to say.
Of course, if it were a PBS or KVOS production, it would have to be taped in BC.....Basi and Virk, now having criminal records, cannot cross the border.
Ideally it should be one of the British investigate shows or papers; but for that one of these two gentlemen, or someone, is going to have to drop a multi-megaton infobomb about what went down and how they can prove it.....as I've said before, if this is left to the Canadian news networks to "manage", it will be spun and sliced and diced and rendered into harmless obscurity without anything coming of it.
It's criminal activies on all sides. Dave Basi won, he's not going to jail and he's not going to be found out why he accepted money, like a pimp does.
He ought to be ashamed of himself for wasting all our time and money. He took and took and took. No wonder the Liberals liked him so much; they are 2 pees in a pod!
Yet you want to cut him some slack? What for? He has nothing to give, just BS.
I don't want Dave to slack off at all; I want him to realize he can rescue his career by coming clean on all his dirty tricks, fessing up about what else he knows went on in cabinet offices and what other crap our "responsible government" were up to during his time carrying wood, bagging money and spewing lies for them.
All of what he, and his lawyers, didn't get a chance to say at the trial, we all still want to know. Well, unless we're a Liberal cabinet minister or party apparatchik, in which case we'd just like the whole thing to go away.
It won't go away until BC Rail has been repossessed by the people of British Columbia; whether because of a court finding that the deal was illegal, or through re-nationalization. CN bought a party leader, then a government, and then got its boodle as a reward, and there's no way this can be seen as anything but "seeking to influence government officials" and "seeking to obtain a benefit" etc etc. Basi and others know what went down and it's time for the silence to end.
I'm asking for Dave Basi to step up to bat, not loll on the couch playing videogames with the kids or wondering how things might have went if the trial had gone forward.
I'm asking for Basi to come forward with the truths all you Anony-meese are trying to pretend is irrelevant, and want to shut down discussion of.
It ain't gonna work, it hasnn't worked for the last seven years (shutting us up), and we're not about to back down now. We've smelled blood for a long time, and it's always when the quarry is getting close to being caught that we see posts like yours, dissembling what others have said, trying to discredit anything Basi might say (especially if it turns out to be the truth, which he no longer has any reason to hide).
As in my post about Palmer's babble, a public inquiry that is not really in indictment only a bunch of witnessing that will produce "oh, is that so? Ok, let's move on" just ain't gonna wash. What is shocking is the number of people who've played along with the privatization schemes of this government; they're all participants, knowingly so, in a massive fraud. How many should be indicted when the time comes? Probably many more than just a clutch of cabinet ministers and an certain about-to-be-ex Preem and his much-rumoured bagcarrier-cum-gf.....
I wonder if you've said pretty much the same thing, in pretty much all the other blogs, all day. Must get boring. But hey - yours is a boring comment.
