Well, well, well....
It would appear that it pays to go deeper than the press release.
When last we were reading 'Castanet' they were playing the privatization of the Kelowna Hospital laundry pretty much straight-up.
Well, it would appear that they're too are on to the story that has already been chased down by idiot bloggers and their readers.
Here's a bit of Castanet's latest under Wayne Moore's byline:
The company that will soon begin handling laundry services at several Interior Health hospitals has a long history of being a big supporter of the B.C. Liberal Party.
Abbotsford-based EcoTex Healthcare Linen Service Inc. contributed more than $130,000 to the party from 2005 to 2014. The company is a Canadian subsidiary of its Seattle-based parent company.
The last contributions were made in early March and late April of 2014, of $7,500 and $4,000, respectively.
According to records provided by Elections BC, there have been no contributions since April 2014. That means there have been no contributions since a decision was made to contract out laundry services within Interior Health.
The company contributed nearly $28,000 to the party in in 2011 and, during the last election in 2013, contributed $4,000 to the party and $10,000 to Abbotsford-based MLA hopefuls.
In all, the company contributed $125,940 to the BC Liberals, while president/CEO Randy Bartsch personally contributed $10,720 between 2006 and 2010...
And, for the record, reader Lew has uncovered other 'related' contributions that are not insignificant.
Tip O' The Toque to an Anon-O-Mouse in the comments for the heads-up on the latest from the good folks at Castanet.
The MoCo is now on the story....Barely.
