We have already established the following.....
....Former RailGate era Finance Minister Gary Collins once worked for David Ho's now defunct Harmony Airways.
....Current Deputy Finance Minister Graham Whitmarsh, who helped Deputy AG David Loukidelis put together the super-secret $6 million dollar plea-copping bonus-baby deal that ensured that former Minister Collins would never have to testify, under oath, in front of transcripts of RCMP surveillance wiretaps, at the RailGate trial, also worked for Harmony back in the day.
But here's something we didn't know, courtesy of Sean Holman's fantastic archives over at Public Eye.....
.....Current Deputy Finance Minister Whitmarsh was 'relieved' of his duties at Harmony on Nov. 30th 2006.
....Former RailGate era Finance Minister Collins resigned from Harmony just one day later on Dec. 01 2006.
Which, in my opinion at least, means two more things.....
....Mr. Whitmarsh and Mr. Collins know each other because they both worked together as executives at the small, locally-based Harmony Airways at the same time.
....It is not unreasonable for a reasonable person to wonder if the government of British Columbia and, more specifically, the Premier of British Columbia under whose pleasure all deputy ministers serve, placed Mr. Whitmarsh in a conflict of interest by having him help work out a super secret deal that ultimately benefitted a previous close business associate.
