All 12 jurors in BC Rail trial commit for the duration
Did the heavens just open and smile upon us or something?
What a wonderful message for us all, that twelve good people stepped forward to say "Yes, we can do this. We'll see this trial through because it's important!"
Blessings upon them all.
So this BC Rail trial is on its way again, moving forward.
Thank heaven for this good, good news.
Martyn [Brown, premier's chief of staff], spent much of the first week of the trial responding to allegations by defence lawyers that he repeatedly called one of the accused to offer support.

Please give yourself a User Name and tell us more!!
Were there many people in the public gallery?
Many thanks for these tantalizing glimpses! Did you see Robin Mathews there? And Bill T.?
To the jurors;
All of the citizens of BC owe all of you a HUGE thank you for keeping this train on the tracks!!!!!
I think we are just cresting the hill, the first time I have truly looked forward to a run-away!!!!
and me, too. Looking forward to a run-away, I mean.
Good luck, all around. All we ask is a trial ... and a fair trial.
Not that that forgives dirty tricks-type stuff and the associated morality, but these guys' political careers are anything but over.
You are absolutely correct, Martyn Brown doesn't intend to make it easy for the Accused; no quarrel there.
don't you feel that rush of astonishment when McCullough ASKS THE QUESTIONS??
It's as if there had been a Publication Ban over the past 6 years ...
and now, suddenly we're hearing the gist of the argument:
McCullough to Brown: Did you or the premier phone Bobby Virk regularly, during the year he was Absent With Pay, and tell him the Liberal Party would look after him if he kept his mouth shut?
I might have imagined those things, but I'm pretty darn sure that McCullough is asking questions based upon information Bobby Virk gave him.
And that's news!
C'mon, Norman, hands on shoulders, Dance of Joy!!
