The corruption trial of three former B.C. government staffers was postponed on Tuesday because one of the accused apparently fell ill.

Judge Anne MacKenzie announced the trial would take a break until May 31.

Premier Gordon Campbell's chief of staff Martyn Brown was expected face another day of questioning when the second week of the legislature raid trial was scheduled to get underway in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on Tuesday morning.

BC Mary comment: Like, Aneal could've stayed home in bed, and been more comfortable watching and listening to everything said in BC Supreme Court today, if somebody would flip the ON switch and televize the sessions from  Courtroom #20, the Air India Courtroom (fully fitted). Right? Aneal and everybody else who cares about the BC Rail Corruption trial could be fully informed. So why not flip the damn switch and get on with the trial? Otherwise, what's the next time-out ... Bill Berardino has gout? Erik Bornmann has toothache? And before we know, it's Christmas again. Come onn.


And it's not as if anyone hasn't used their bed before in this case.
I hope the time is put to good use getting Court Room #20 ready for TV. A trial of this importance should get national TV coverage and who better to do it than the CBC. It's not like they have a lot to do with no hockey left in Canada this year.

It shouldn't take too long, once The Grand Poobah says it's OK ...

to turn the ON switch to ... well, ON.

From what I understand, Courtroom #20 is state of the art, and was set up for the Air India Trial. All ready to go again.
