NDP questioning B.C. Liberal consultant
The NDP continues to raise questions about why lobbyist and Liberal strategist Patrick Kinsella was paid $300,000 as a consultant on BC Rail.
Premier Campbell and Attorney General Wally Oppal have refused to answer questions in the legislature over the payment because it appears in documents related to charges laid against three former government aides after a raid on the legislature in 2003.
The NDP says Kinsella claims he was hired by BC Rail to help with the provincial government's core review of all its operations, but the review ended in 2002 and Kinsella was paid until 2005.
The NDP wants to know exactly what Kinsella did to earn the money, including what qualifications he had for the job and whether he produced any final report.
