Yesterday, we were talking about the 'conversations' that Premier Christy Clark and her brother Bruce Clark had with Massett Village Chief Councillor Ken Rea that helped make $150,000 in public money appear out of (according to an empty FOIR response) out of thin air.
All of which got me to thinking about a 'conversation' that Mr. Clark had with a former member of the Gordon Campbell government that Ms. Clark herself ran away from as fast as she could back in the days of yore.
Neither of which had anything to do with anything untoward whatsoever.
Here is a transcript of that long ago conversation, for the record, based on a recording made by the RCMP for no reasons of untowardness whatsoverest, even if the discussion in the call was focussed on a draft 'requests for proposal' (RFP) for a certain railway spur line whose proposed 'sale' (which was to be based, presumably, on responses to the 'RFP') would later be cancelled based on completely, totally and absolutely unrelated reports of any and all potential untowardness from that very same RCMP:
David Basi: "So basically, um, what we have is the draft RFP."
Bruce Clark: "Okay."
Basi: "Um, that uh, we have t' make changes and y'know, uh, um, we can draft it anyway we want now, right: so..."
Clark: "Whose, wh', whose hands is it in?"
Basi: "It's, it's in our hands right now."
Basi: "Uh, and then it'll go back to transportation. And then they'll look at it and then they'll uh, um, issue the official RFP."
Clark: "Okay. What are the time lines like?"
Basi: "Uh, two weeks."
Basi: "So, I can sit on this thing for two weeks. So if you come back next week then you can take it and look at it, show it to them. They can, they can, y'know, change some of the words around, that's obviously, some buzz words they wanna see in there, right?"
Basi: "And these, these companies know how to, how to, y'know, get the fluff out of this shit and how to tailor it to themselves, right?"
Clark: "Of course."
Clark: "Wonder, wonder if it would be better if you got it couriered from here or not?"
Basi: "I don't care. Whatever you want. I don't care."
Clark: "Okay, well maybe I'll get you to courier it to Europe for me, or something."
Basi: "You want me to courier it to Europe?"
Clark: "Sure, you could do that."
Clark: "Or uh, or, or can it be faxed or something or?"
Basi: "Oh it can be faxed, yeah. Do you wanna give me a fax, secure fax number?"
Clark: "Yeah, I'll get you a secure fax number and we can do it that way."
Basi: "Yeah, you get me a fax number and I'll fax it to you.
Clark: "Sounds great my friend."
Wonder if there are any other 'conversations' recorded by the Horsemen from days of yore that we have never heard thanks to the sudden emergence (out of thin air again and/or the prying eyes of the cabinet or the treasury board) of $6,000,000 in public money?
