BC Liberals ‘fudged numbers’

A Victoria-based magazine has alleged the BC Liberals used government resources before the last election to help fudge the number of jobs liquefied natural gas would create in the province.

Focus Online published a report citing documents it obtained through a freedom-of-information request suggesting “dubious” assumptions about job numbers were made by government staffers.

The numbers were used by the BC Liberals during the run-up to the 2013 election.

The documents detail communications between current assistant deputy minister of strategic initiatives Doug Foster and various members of a consulting group and B.C. government staff.
