"Once a public official crosses the line, they are no longer working for the public, but are using their public office to work for someone else." outlines many reasons German report screams for an inquiry into BC's corruption. via

Here are some of the questions I would ask: 1. Why was the RCMP handed a new 2012 BC policing contract with almost zero consultation despite many recommendations for a new provincial force & numerous RCMP screwups?

2. What quid pro quo came with that contract? Did it include some sort of agreement to stay away from org crime/casino files because it sure as hell looked like no one was doing that work after 2012?

3. Was the disbanding of the RCMP's IIGET in 2010 a preemptive attempt to keep investigators away? As documents, Coleman responded bizarrely to questions on this move. Why?

4. Why did RCMP Insp Baxter's 2011 observation about BC money laundering raise Coleman's ire when RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulsen has been ringing that bell about organized crime for years? Why was Baxter targeted?

5. My suspicions are that the RCMP β€” perhaps unwittingly because this is the RCMP β€” made a deal with the devil to stay in BC.

6. Why were the portfolios of housing, gaming, and liquor merged under Minister Coleman? Surely he can answer that.

7. To be clear, these are questions that need answers. I don't have any inside info on this, but this all seems pretty obviously in need of exploration in the Legislature or in an inquiry.

8. I suspect it all goes way back. In the mid 2000s, a former member of the old integrated surveillance unit working the BC Rail file told me of being stood down one day w/out explanation just as things were heating up. Team told not to ask & never worked BC Rail again. Why?

9. Believe me, if I could prove any of this, I'd write a book. But, as with all good corruption stories, no one talks unless something big breaks. This province is so locked up in corruption it isn't even funny. It touches everything.

10. The only reason I even paid attention to the RCMP contract in 2012 was it seemed unlikely given the recommendations for a regional/provincial police force after the Pickton disaster. Many police folks were shocked the contract was signed in such a flash. So was Eby. So why?

There seems to be a notable absence of RCMP efforts in certain related areas

I agree with that sentiment absolutely and have been saying that to anyone who would listen for two decades.

Maybe look as well at the timing of the new headquarters work going ahead (an enormous investment) when no contract had been signed.
