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)
Hard to believe, amid all the huffing and puffing and gasping for air, that...
The first half of The Marathon is pretty much done.....
Hopefully this little excercise in running around to gather everything together in one place will help keep the Document Dump from totally Disappearing all things Casino Royale from the Public View down the road.
To recap the gathering so far.....
We have established that BC Liberal Party Donor, Campbell Government Insider, and former Chair of the BC Lotteries Corporation, Mr. T. Richard Turner, intervened three times on behalf of Paragon Canada ULC, a private company that he, Mr. Turner, has had a financial interest in since before he stepped down as Chair of the BC Lottery Corporation in 2005, while negotiations were ongoing between Paragon and the Public's representatives (PavCo) regarding the construction and operation of a massive Casino and Hotel Complex that will be built next door to the re-furbished, and still-to-be re-roofed, BC Place Stadium.
Furthermore, these three interventions by Mr. Turner occurred AFTER PavCo sent out a public request for proposals to develop the land next to BC Place in the spring of last year (2009) and BEFORE the deal to build the Casino/Hotel Complex was finalized in the spring of this year (2010).
Given all that is described above regarding Mr. Turner's interventions, why did Paragon spokesperson Naomi Strasser tell Sean Holman of PublicEye the following on or before March 31st of this year (2010):
"....(Mr. Turner) was not involved in Paragon's response to the public request for proposals for the development of the lands surrounding BC Place."
Curious that - no?
