Inspired by the Document Dump Friday just past, the Marathon to resurrect all that has been buried by Lotusland's lazy proMedia is now moving along nicely, thank-you very much.....
(please see sidebar for a mile-by-mile breakdown of the race to the finish line)
A little winded at this point and why, exactly, would anybody ever want to run one of these silly things anyway.
So - let's get right down to it shall we...
We have already established, in the earlier Miles of the Marathon that PavCo CEO, Mr. Warren Buckley, the man responsible for making the Casino Industrial Complex deal in downtown Vancouver on behalf of, apparently, the People of British Columbia, either does not know, or chooses not to let us know that he knows, that Mr. T. Richard Turner is actually one of the three Principals in Paragon Canada Holdings ULC, the company that he and his just awarded the huge, and groundbreaking on a whole lotta levels, Casino Industrial Complex contract to.
How do we know what Mr. Buckley does not, or chooses not to, tell us what he, perhaps, does or does not know regarding what Mr. Turner's true level of involvement in Paragon is?
Because, it's all there in the corporate registry documents that Sean Holman of Public Eye was good enough to dig up for us*:
Regardless the hows, ifs, ands, or buts.......The fact that Mr. Buckley cannot state, clearly and unequivocally, that Mr. T. Richard Turner is in fact one the Principals in Paragon tells us, in my opinion at least, a lot about the state of PavCo's desire and/or ability (or lack thereof) to undertake the the appropriate due diligence that is required to enter into massive deals like both the Retractable Roof for BC Place and the Casino Industrial Complex to ensure that we, the People of British Columbia don't get ourselves into a disastrous situation that will, ultimately, cost us hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars more than originally planned.
After all, it's not as if such a disaster has not happened in the wake a PavCo-brokered project in the past.
*And it's a good thing that Mr. Holman did that digging. Otherwise we, the People of British Columbia, would all be playing the part of Sgt. Schulz on this entire matter. Especially given the fact that rest of the local proMedia 'round Lotusland is clearly already playing the part of the hapless, lazy, and totally ineffective Col. Klink....
