January 21, 2019

VICTORIA, B.C. – Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, issued the following statement in response to the report written by Speaker Darryl Plecas and released publicly by the all-party Legislative Assembly Management Committee (LAMC):

“The report released today makes serious and shocking claims that have significant implications for public trust in our democratic institutions.

“The B.C. Green caucus fully supports the motions passed unanimously today by the LAMC. These are crucial first steps towards restoring integrity and faith in our provincial government.

“As a caucus we have made democratic integrity a major focus, championing issues such as lobbying reform and campaign finance reform. The people of our province deserve public institutions they can trust. We have never been more committed to seeking the truth and restoring our democracy for the benefit of all British Columbians.

“We will do whatever it takes to ensure that this trust is restored and that British Columbians get answers to the numerous unanswered questions that are raised by this report.

“We will have further comments in the near future once we have had a chance to review this report in detail.”
