Deputy Minister Charges taxpayer for Liberal Fundraiser

We have looked after it says Gordon Campbell.

Question: Would they have looked after it (returned the money) if it had not become public?

New development was made today. The Campbell Liberals hired the President of the Liberal Party in 2001 as Deputy Minister for Economic Development. Clearly he was hired for his party ties, but lets say most parties will do this. So this "wrong" is acceptable or we can't hit the Liberals on this.

Now we learn the Deputy Minister flew to a Liberal Party fundraiser masqueraded as Community Development meeting. Deputy Minister Andrew Wilkinson billed the BC Government $400+ to fly to Terrace to attend the Liberal fundraiser. Now lets wait to see if he claims his invitation came on Legislative letterhead.
